    For about the last 3 months I've been getting emails that Norton blocks saying there was 2 attachments infected. I hoped they'd just go away after awhile, but it seems they are doing the opposite and becoming more common. The two attachmetns it blocks are:

    The email attachment data.rtf .scr within word document_pvandy.zip is infected with the [email protected] virus.

    The email attachment word document_pvandy.zip is infected with the [email protected] virus.

    I went to symantec.com and tried to follow the steps to remove the netsky virus, but it didn't work, if anyone has any input I'd appreciate it. I haven't noticed any effects from teh viruses, but its just annoying getting them a couple of times per day.Thanks in advance.

    I already downloaded and ran the tool and it didn't find anything, but I redid it and still nothing. Why am I still getting these emails everyday? And is there anyway to stop them?

    Thanks
