Question
How can I get rid of te torpig virus? I've already ran Malwarebytes and spy bot and Stronghold.
It has disabled my Norton antivirus.
Is there a way to remove it without having to pay ?

Answer
Hi Karen,

There are other methods, but first let me know if you've tried:

malwareremovalguides.info/how-to-use-malwarebytes-anti-rootkit-to-remove-rootkits

Norton is likely the best of the two, but don't use two anti-virus applications. Please remove one.

They're not compatible with each other and create instabilities and make a system less secure.
