Hi Ally,

This behavior might be resultant of Trojans or viruses. Now that your anti-virus application has found the Trojans and viruses you should remove them using a good Anti-Virus. What is the result when you try to clean your computer using "Symantec Endpoint Protection"?

Please do write back to us.

Please try the steps in the above link and check if you are able to remove the quarantined files.
