What antivirus software do you all use?
I am using Norton Internet Security 2005 and Norton SystemWorks 2005, have not had any trouble with it before but have picked up 2 viruses in a week. Formatted my computer the other day and all seemed well but picked up another tonight "Backdoor.Beasty.Family". It keeps saying it has found it and deleted it but can't have. Have run the virus scanner in both normal mode and safe mode and it does not find anything. Followed instructions from symantec site about deleting things in the registry but can't find anything there either.

Every time i "right click" on something it occurs !

Have installed Microsoft Office 2003 lately, wonder if this is where the problem is from?

Hope someone can shed some light on the problem

In defence of Norton, i've had it since the beginning and had no problems at all, it seems to do its job well blocking loads of trojan thingies and something trying to get in the back door sub seven(?). I'm happy with it.

In other words, the only route for viruses in this scenario is from the Internet or from cd's\floppies from other people.
perhaps i've misunderstood you there puss, but can't you get virusses from emails and particularly when you open an attachment?

Hi badger,

Nice to see someone else in support of norton, thought i was the only one!

I think the important thing with norton, like you say, is to set it up for auto updates.
