    Hi everyone. I just received a pretty big shock earlier when I was trying to restart my computer after an update. I had just updated my Norton software which had a Common Client Update and I had hit the OK button to make the computer restart. Well, apparently some program had frozen up because an End Program window came up from the Task Manager. However, what really freaked me out was that I did not recognize this program. It said Ending Program - Should Not See me. Needless to say, I am a little bit freaked out. I have Norton Antivirus and Norton Internet Security on my computer so I don't see how a virus could have sneaked by. I am doing a virus scan right now just to make sure my computer is safe. I am wondering if maybe a trojan isn't on my computer. However, Norton should detect a trojan... right? I have heard different people say that Norton is practically worthless when it comes to trojans but then I have also heard that it does detect trojans. Last night, I had downloaded and installed both Netscape and Mozilla Firebird. This wouldn't have caused that frozen program would it?! Could someone please help me?! I am really quite freaked out about this. I know there is probably a simple solution or explanation but it still worries me. Your help will be greatly appreciated.

    Hi there. Thank you everyone for the help. I read the article that JohnO gave me and noticed that one of the possible causes is an NIVIDEA Driver. Well, I have an NVIDEA GForce 2 video card so I am thinking that my driver for it caused the message. I did a full system scan with Norton Antivirus this morning and nothing came up. I'll probably do a spyware scan with adaware and spybot later to make sure it isn't something else. Thanks for the help! Later.
