I'VE BEEN HEARING ALOT ABOUT THE SNOW WHITE VIRUS AT WORK. IT WAS FOUND ON SEVERAL OF OUR COMPUTERS AT WORK. HOW CAN I TELL IF MY HOME COMPUTER HAS IT ALSO?
I HAVE NORTON ANTI-VIRUS ON MY HOME COMPUTER BUT IT HASN'T DETECTED ANYTHING SO FAR.

Update your Norton AntiVirus, and then run a full system scan. If nothing shows up, then you're fine. Make sure it's always running in the background so you'll be protected from malicious e-mails and downloads.

I'VE RUN NORTON BUT FOUND NOTHING. MAYBE I'M BARKING UP THE WRONG VIRUS TREE. I'VE FOUND "SULFNBK.EXE" IN MY COMMAND FILES. WHAT COULD IT BE?

Don't open it.
My ZoneAlarm rename the attachments to keep them from opening on there own. But I have Netscape so I would have to click the attach files to open them. But Outlook can open these attachments on it own I think.
You can turn that off somehow so someone else will have to tell you how.
I would disable Windows Scripting Host too.
