Ahh, I see Smile

Hopefully your machine will now stay clean of all those viruses and spyware now then. Make sure you keep norton up to date tho, allowing live update to check automatically if you can. You should have free updates for a whole year with norton anti-virus (if i remember correctly). Unless they've updated norton considerably since last time I used it (2003 I think) it wasn't designed to detect spyware so make sure you also run a copy of MicroSoft's Anti-Spyware or Spybot Search and Destroy or similar to keep you safe from those.



my norton antivirus is registered till 2008

Hi, I would just like to say that my boss has also received the email from DVD Zone22, which rang alarm bells almost immediately as his email address is - well - redundant - we don't use it at all as we have a main email address for work, it was only set up originally as he was the boss. But as I am the accounting manager he left it for me for when I returned from holiday (today) and as I had been suspicious I thought I would search through Google and here I am, finding the information I needed, and would like to thank you very much as this has confirmed my suspicions. Thank You.

No problem at all Smile We're glad we could help a few people by putting their minds at rest and getting caught by this scam.
