Hey; every time I turn on my computer, the virus alert notification is flashing and although I've tried to permanently hide it, every couple of days, it turns itself back on and continues to alert me to the fact that I have "malware"?! Plus, every day, the Trojan virus tries to attack the system. I've run Norton Antivirus several times - it's clear - but I'm still getting the notification. Can anyone help? Thank you!

it means, is your virus protection up to date.

generally if you open the program you'll see what the date is for your virus definitions.

if it's more than 30 days old, you may have a virus.

Ah, I see. The date is 04/01/06, so quite recent! I just wondered if there's anything I can do to stop it all...

Think it's the English thing...we have date/month/year, so that's Jan. 4th 2006. There are three hundred and something days left on the subscription.

does norton do auto updates?

do a manual update and see if it says you've got the latest and greatest.
