"Norton AntiVirus ENHANCED PROTECTION MODE" is a fake security alert that pretends to be a notification from Norton AntiVirus about virus detected on your computer. However, Norton doesn't have such protection mode, so this security alert is obviously fake and hides the presence of the malware in the system. If you've got this fake security alert then your computer is infected by a Trojan Horse.

Norton AntiVirus
Norton AntiVirus operates under enhanced
protection mode.
This is temporary measure
necessary for immediate response to
the threat from virus.
No action is required from you.
The Trojan horse displays this fake Norton AntiVirus update notification too.

The fake security alert runs from (command line): C:\WINDOWS\update.tray-10-0-lnk\svchost.exe tray 10-0 1

In order to remove the Trojan that causes the fake Norton AntiVirus ENHANCED PROTECTION MODE alert, please scan your computer with legitimate anti-malware applications listed below. You can read more about this infection here: Avast ENHANCED PROTECTION MODE. Good luck and be safe online!

Download free anti-malware software from the list below and run a full system scan.
NOTE: in some cases the rogue program may block anti-malware software. Before saving the selected program onto your computer, you may have to rename the installer to iexplore.exe or winlogon.exe With all of these tools, if running Windows 7 or Vista they MUST be run as administrator. Launch the program and follow the prompts. Don't forget to update the installed program before scanning.
