Question: Help!!! I think that my computer is infected with a virus. What should I do? What will the virus do to my computer? Sheila G
.Answer: You are lucky to realize that something is wrong. That's half of the battle. The first thing that you should do is run a virus scan on your computer. What! You don't have a virus scanner on your computer! Don't feel too bad, I didn't believe in virus scans either until my system became infected. Don't become a believer after it's too late.
Answer: Unfortunately, "the horse is already out of the barn". Your data may already be gone but you should contact Symantec, the manufacturer of Norton, before you proceed with any data recovery attempt. Consult with a professional before you conclude that your data is gone. Your question also brings up a very important computer issue. ALWAYS BACKUP YOUR DATA!!!
