Lottie opened her Outlook express last evening and automatically Nortons grabbed an e-mail titled: Darin Tennyson.doc.pif

We both don't know this person so we put it in Quarantine and then removed it from her system.

Just to give everyone a heads up on this one. Nortons kicks butt! Heres a link to bugbear info:

That's good stuff.

We've been using this TrendMicro thingie on the exchange server at work, and Bug Bear's
been hitting hard. Good to hear that Norton's is up to the task.

I don't know if our McAfee's can even see it, cause it has yet to get to anyone!

I used McAfee's on my first two systems. It never seemed to catch anything, but then maybe nothing ever came across to catch? I switched to Norton's, and within two days it caught a virus in an e-mail attachment.

Been using Norton's ever since.
