maybe that Essentials is blocking it, you can't use two anti-virus at the same time, one will leave the other vulnerable.
Microsoft computers report viruses on blue backgrounds. Can you try and read it? It might be worth phoning some sort of helpline?
Norton is the most popular anti-virus, not the best one. I did my research and now have Vipre anti-virus and anti spyware. If you uninstalled windows then you lost everything including the remaining days left on your subscription to your anti virus.
I had same parasite, solved it with microsoft security essentials. Overall, avg free is not a good choice - go for avast or avira. Windows defender should work with AVG, though it is not a big help in PC security
personally i'd try something like AVG does the whole job very easily and they have a free edition, the MS stuff is ok, but not very thorough in my experience
I suggest you run a scan with malwarebytes . you can get malwarebytes here, this is a direct download link so you should have no trouble getting it. click on this link ↓ and then select run. http://www.malwarebytes.org/affiliates/2-spyware/mbam-setup.exe INSTALL IT TO YOUR DESKTOP, update it, then run a full scan and remove everything it finds. some viruses will try to disable it so if malwarebytes will not start up then go into the folder it is in and rename the mbam file to XXX then double click on the file you just renamed to start it up. after you have used malwarebytes then do this online scan. to make sure you have nothing else hiding away. http://www.bitdefender.com/scan8/ie.html preferably in safe mode with networking. ☼
