    this did not help??
    Click Start, and then click Run. (The Run dialog box appears.)
    Type regedit, and then click OK. (The Registry Editor opens.)
    Navigate to the key:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer


    In the right pane, delete the value: PINF
    Exit the Registry Editor.


    i did this, and i also clean out some out the main files that wuz in the temp folder, i guess its removed ::crosses finger::

    Norton still not working

    The virus, when it first infected, probably did a knock-out punch on Norton by deleting/corrupting its EXEs or data files. It's getting to be a common habit for the more 'successful' viruses, as it makes their lifetime a little longer although their appearance is a LOT more obvious...

    Uninstall Norton. Delete the virus. Install Norton again.

    Most important thing of a virusscanner is keeping it updated. If your Norton was up-to-date, then it would have detected the pinfi in teh first place.
