I am running a home network on DSL. I have been getting some viruses and worms on my computer lately. My question is if my Norton catches these first, are they capable of spreading on to the other computer on the network?

If your AV catches them, probably not. The ones to worry about are the ones that the AV doesn't catch! :D

I agree with johnwill, but I'd still run a virus scan on ALL computers on the network just to be sure. You can never be too careful when it comes to viruses :)
