Hi Guys,
I have Norton Anti Virus 2001 on my pc, did a full virus scan when first installed, and have auto protect active, and update regularly.

I have had a few "illegal operation" messages lately, so run System File Checker to see if there were any problems. While it was running, Norton, Found three Trojan Horse Viruses,and one other, which it could not repair, so has them quarantined for the moment.

How did it not find these in a normal scan I wonder. I have not had any problems as such, but am curious how running "sfc" brought these viruses out ? I have included a shot of the viruses found.
Cheers.
Gus.

Hi Gus,

That sounds rather strange to me.
I can't see how you running SFC would make any difference one way or the other.

Maybe you'd better address this question to Symantec support.
They ought to be able to tell you something.

Greetz,

Hi Tony,
Yes it is strange really. I will drop symantec a line and let you know if they come up with anything. Thanks for the reply.
