    I never open e-mail from anyone unless I know them and I thought trojans were sent in e-mails usually which is why I am posting. I never download anything off the internet, but do surf a lot. Usually sites containing research, corporate jobs in the region, etc I go to. I stay off sites likely to contain viruses, like porn, P2P sites or illegal music downloads. I have a router and Norton Internet Security.

    Yesterday I got "PWSteal", which I managed to delete through Norton. The only way I think I got it was someone finding an open port. I had an "Invalid TCP Flag" intrusion a month ago blocked by Norton Utilities. Would this have most likely been the method to the trojan entrance?
