Hi everybody, i'm happy to say i'm finally VIRUS-FREE (until the next time!).. And my Norton Anti Virus updates are working again. The virus i had "gaobot" stops your anti-virus software so hence, i had more than 20 viruses on my machine because my live updates were not working in the past few weeks.

If you have the gaobot virus (you feel your anti-virus software isnt working), here's the link from symantec, which i used to delete it.

Hope this helps somebody else out & once again THANKS to everybody for helping me out
