Download AVG free or Microsofts free ant virus. Download malwareybytes
Download zone alarm for a firewall or use miscrosofts built in firewall. Set your browser to block 3rd party applications/cookies. You are basically done.
I wonder if the OP is still looking for an answer after more than a year has passed.

Every once in a while a thread gets pulled out of Never Never Land. This is one. I am always amazed that someone would go that far back (how many pages did they have to scroll through to find this?) and then think it was worth bringing back instead of just starting a new one.

I've seen this happen in other forums and wondered what the thread was all about, started reading, then found I had posted in it a couple of years ago and completely forgot about it.

I still think some should be closed when their issue is resolved.

Its probably someone in India working for Norton searching Internet forums for any mention of their product, then posting a positive review.

I predict that the thread came up on some related search.

CD stuff has pretty good long tail.
