Re: how to get rid of Kotver!gen5

Went to norton sight and checked out the removal for Kotver!gen5. I ran a full system scan and norton power eraser. The Norton pop=up always says that it removed the threat but a re-start of my computer is needed to complete the removal to which I do. Problem is it keeps coming back so I have to go through the same old same old a couple times a day. I don't understand why Norton can't block it before it gets in my system. Surely I'm not the only one that has received this threat! Any advice is welcome !

Hi Shedman,

 

Are you on WIN 8 or 10 by chance?

 

Have you disabled Fast Start?

 

Please see the following:
