I just found out from a friend that i have a trojan/virus in my system. i didn't understand some of the instructions you linked me. --some of those instructions i cant perform because system restore doesn't get rid of the virus and i don't have the operating disc anymore to start over. Is there a way that i could download an anti-virus software ( that works in safe mode)or go to a free online scan & threat removal website- and hopefully get fix the hal.dll file?

DL the free version and install and update it.
This is an on-demand AV program and shouldn't interfere wih Norton360.
Run MBAM and see what it finds.

Can you duplicate the "hal.dll" fault? IOW, just do what you did to cause the fault, if it doesn't happen, then the problem may be fixed.

The malware "PUM.Disabled..." is probably a rootkit. Googling "PUM.Disabled" (- quotes) brings up a whole big laundry list of help... some of which want money for said help. I recommend you try a couple of rootkit removers (google it, there are free ones out there) first.
If that doesn't remove the problem, then I recommend subscribing to a dedicated malware removal site and going thru the process of manual removal.
