Response to In fairness to Norton

 

What that's all about. The message sounds like a Norton message but there's so much spy vs spy stuff going on now -where malware is POSING as anti-virus programs- you can't be sure from a distance, exactly what is transpiring.

The good thing is that you actually found something to get rid of whatever it was.

The thing with malware too, is that the people who are creating the stuff HAVE full access to all the AV programs around and so they craft their applications to prevent detection by the most popular AV programs. (They test to make sure). Thus, you might find that some obscure cheap/free AV program will identify the stuff whereas the front line AV programs will then miss it.
