    turn off norton pop up alerts or they will drive you mad

    I am 99% sure YOU haven't got any trojans but the way norton alerts work it seems to tell you that every incoming probe is an infection

    it was an incoming and not outgoing wasn't it?

    TURN OFF the alerts, they drive you bonkers. Norton works and you don't need to know about incoming alerts, leave outgoing enabled that is normally the first sign of a problem

    you will be paranoid in a few minutes

    (if you already aren't from being an administrator here withn us rabble ) :D
