Well this Xmas present came early! Just finished Adaware scan (clear) then NAV 2003 scan on Xp home. Showed my first problem Trojan Horse reboot.exe which could not be repaired by NAV but it is now in quarrantine. Could not find anything relevant using Google. Virus definitions are usually up to date and always delete unread any unknown emails- a few have started to arrive over the last 10 days. I guess what I would really like help on is whether just by leaving it in quarrantine is that enough. ( I tried to do the test check thru Symanted but it went into a loop and would not progress)
Happy Holiday break to all.

Further to above, a reminder came today from NAV that my subscription is due for renewal in a month - but of course this would not be relevant(of course not)

Maybe something like this (http://www.wanadoo.com.lb/virus/default.asp?language=2&virus=95)

You could also download and install the a2 (http://www.emsisoft.com/en/software/free/) anti trojan scanner. It is more specialised than Nortons for trojans.

It is a coincidence isn't it?

Anothr one that is worth trying and keeping an eye on is PestPatrol. In the last 6 months the have improved markedly. It now competes very well with other programs, including Trojans.
