Ok so ive had my rig for 2 days and norton has failed to find or delete 36 viruses :eek:

I now have 2 format it all. Does any1 have any suggestions or tips in doing this? Will it definitely delete all viruses even if the pc was riddled with them?

Im also now on the hunt for some Antivirus softwatre. Ive heard AVG considering it's free is excellent as well as NOD32, what do you guys suggest?

Also im on an unlegit version of windows :( and i can't find my windows firewall or security settings anywhere? Will it have been installed if it isn't a real copy? What firewall would you then suggest 2 use?

Any help would be great guys as im kinda stuck atm!

Thx.

PS:Sry if posted in wrong section, couldn't find anywhere else suitable.
