I recently got caught as I had not been keeping my virus checker up to date. It was only a month or two out of date.

I use Norton Antivirus, however when I updated the virus definitions, Norton Antivirus isolated the virus but this process stopped me lauching anything.

I thought I would need to rebuild, and was just about to, when I decide to look at the Symantic site. They do provide a way to sort out this problem and get rid of the virus at their web site.

THE LESSONS FOR TODAY:

A: Always keep your virus definitions up to date

B: Check first with anti virus software providers before resorting to rebuilding.
