Hi,

Since yesterday, I've been recieving a prompt from norton saying 'Norton Auto-Protect detected security risk winfixer'. I've been recieving this about every five minutes and can't seem to get rid of it. I've tried running a norton scan but the scan fails/or doesn't start. Tried a few other programs but nothing. I don't think anything's been affected but the constant prompts are highly annoying

Does anyone know how to get rid of this?

Thanks for reading.
