Usually, when our computer is attacked by viruses, the anti-virus installed in our system removes them but many a times, our computer is hit by some threats which are not removed by the present anti-virus.

Also, sometimes, the condition gets so critical that our system does not even boot up on its own. At that time, we need outside tool to rescue us from this condition.

Considering this problem, Norton has come up with a Bootable Recovery Tool which gets you back up and running fast if you are in the above situation.

You can also select the desired language from the list of around 20 languages. After all the settings, you just have to select ‘Next’ and its done.

After downloading the Norton bootable recovery tool I restarted my computer as prompted and now it tells me the “attempted operation unsuccessful” and the computer shuts down on its own. What do I do now?
