I use Avast in preference to norton; but it is your choice.
Go into Safe Mode, and rescan in SM to find probs(info on how to at the
bottom) ity
Rescan with Spybot S & D, and norton in SM

Programs that I have installed, and how to use them to remove problems.

Vista’s Firewall works very well.

http://www.avast.com/eng/download-avast-home.html

Avast Anti-Virus is Vista compatible (32bit and 64bit Versions), FREE,
auto-updating, and a low resources user of your computer.
And, only have 1(one) Anti-Virus installed / running on your computer at any
one time..
Conflicts may occur if you have more than 1(one).

http://www.spybot.info/en/index.html

Spybot Search & Destroy 1.5.2 is a very good, FREE Anti-Spyware Program.
Download, install, update, and immunize your System with it.
Then SCAN with it.
Update it, and scan your System once a fortnight.

SpywareBlaster 4.1 is a non-intrusive, FREE Anti-Spyware Program that runs
in the background (no scanning by you!).
Update it once a fortnight, and let it do its work in the background!

Important re: Safe Mode
If you happen to find a problem that you can’t uninstall / delete, reboot
the computer, and go into Safe Mode.
To get into Safe mode, tap F8 right at Power On / Startup, and use UP arrow
key to get to Safe Mode, then hit ENTER.
RESCAN your computer while in Safe Mode.

You really need to give more detail and look them up one Google or
whatever because what Norton saw is not necessarily related to the
"Trojan" and in any case the warning might be a false positive. Sorry
but there are so many variations of these damned nuisance things that
your description does not give many clues, and nobody here will want to
take a "Guess" and advise you to do something that might damage your system.

A process is running that is most likely piggy backing off of another
running process, and it's not going to be found unless you go deep diving
looking for it with the proper tools, such as Process Explorer which will
allow you to look inside any running process to see what the process is
hosting, including a hidden malware process.

With PE, you go to Menu/View/Show lower pane/Show all DLL(s), which shows
all hidden processes hosted by a running process in the upper pane. You can
right-click a process in the upper pane and go to Properties that will give
you more information about a running process, and you can do the same in the
lower pane too.

add this to your list
Superantispyware
at http://superantispyware.com

It has saved my life over and over. It works on xp and vista and you can
get the free version or the pro
the Pro gives you real time protection and allows you schedule scans
the Free version you have to run manually and doesn't give you real time
protection except watch over your home page in ie.
