    Glad all is resolved for now sweetcheekies but as stated in your other thread the critter that caused this hassle may not be completely gone so review the links provided to the Virus since it infects IE and Kazaa folders.

    I guess there are seveal questions to ask first. Which version of NAV do you have (2000,2001,2002,2003), is it a current subscription, and is it up to date?

    If you have not shutdown NAV in the MSCofig utility then you need to go to NAV options and make sure Auto protect is turned on as is E-Mail scanning. If you shut them down in MSconfig startups then reset them by placing a checkmark in appropriate Nav related items click apply then ok and restart. Having NAV run in background takes up a bit of resources but is sure worth the insurance!

    You understand I am sure that running an Antivirus program in background does not give you absolute protection. Unfortunately some people somewhere are going to be the Guineas for some new infection just spawned, but it will however be the best one can do! Glad you reconsidered. Take care and Happy computing.
