How To Remove Norton AntiVirus Enhanced Protection Mode Virus – Virus Removal



Norton AntiVirus Enhanced Protection Mode Virus is a 100% fake antivirus software program infecting computers running Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7. If you are seeing Norton AntiVirus Enhanced Protection Mode then you are infected with a malware virus. The red window generated by this virus is not from Norton AntiVirus, it is a malicious replica. It recognizes that you are running a Norton product and takes over your computer under the guise that it is still Norton.


This virus appears to be infecting some computer users through a fake Adobe Flash update. It is highly recommended that you do not update Adobe Flash unless the update is coming directly from Adobe. You must be extremely careful what you download. Please note that there may be other ways in which this virus is spreading and not just through fake Adobe Flash updates.


These viruses are becoming extremely clever. They will recognize the antivirus software you are using, in this case Norton AntiVirus, and will camouflage itself so that you do not feel that your computer is infected.


When windows launches you will see a beige window appear, stating that you are protected. It will show that the “release date of the databases” matches the exact date and time you logged in. You will also see a tiny yellow icon resembling a Norton product in the taskbar. Both the beige window and the taskbar icon are deceptive tactics used to convince you that everything is ok.
