I have installed both Norton and Microsoft Security Essentials on my Windows 7 laptop. About 2 days ago, they kept showing Win64/Rovnix.gen!C virus detected on my computer. I tried everything I can to get rid of it, but this threat is such stubborn and didn’t allow me to do that. When I took action to quarantine or remove it, it either gave me error saying that Error code 0x80508023. The program could not find the malware and other potentially unwanted software on this computer or came back again and again after removal is completed. It is very frustrating. Is there any way I can get rid of Virus:Win64/Rovnix.gen!C without coming back?
