    Hi everyone, my Norton detected this virus (Backdoor.Winet)today, but said
    it could not delete or repair it, so I went to the Norton site and followed
    the instructions to delete the virus by going into the registry. I found the
    files, and deleted them from the registry, but it is still being detected by
    Norton as being on my computer. Any suggestions or sites that could help?
    Thanks in advance! Koreena

  2. Perhaps it is still in your "restore file" if you are using ME or XP? If
    you reboot, does it, or does it not reappear in your registry? If it does
    not reappear, then most likely it has been backed up onto your "restore".

  3. Hello,
    Dan is "right on". Try this. Go to and follow the link to
    the anti-virus center. Look up this
    nasty thing and see if they have a downloadable fix for it. If so, download
    it and save to a floppy.
    Disable "System restore". Note: how to do this is in your Windows Help file
    on the programs menu.
    Reboot into "Safe Mode" and run the fix tool. It should clean your hard
    drive and the Restore Partition plus
    clean out the registry.
    Reboot back into Windows XP. Re-enable system restore.
    Operate normally!

    Happy Computing

    Yes, I have XP and that is what's happening. How do I fix that?
