Re: RC: Possible permant cure for virus's !
Are you on a networked computer with Norton on the server? For those of us
with single computers the anti-virus itself is "on the computer" isn't it?,
While Norton (or whatever is used) may scan before you open it, it is
actually on the computer at the time. If new enough for Norton to miss it,
we can be infected.
