I have had my current computer for three years running Windows XP and Norton Anti-virus/Internet Security. I run a very clean efficient system and have never had a virus until..... last week I downloaded and installed Microsoft (Beta) Anti-spyware; since then my computer has been infected with Trojan.Vundo.B and Download.Trojan, I have now removed these and as a precaution un-installed Microsoft (Beta) Anti-Spyware. I would like to know if anyone else has experienced anything similar or is this just an unfortunate coincidence!
Microsoft didn't find them it was Norton that found them, anyone who runs Norton will know when it finds a virus, worm etc. you can't remove the warning until you have removed the virus. Thank you 'oseven' and everyone else so far for replying.
I am not a fan of M$ due to the underhand tactics that they use but I must say that I have been using this for a couple of months now and its (in my opinion) the best thing around (although its actually a Giant software product that M$ like so much it bought the company,underhand tactics again!!),no problems at all,In fact while trying to get some game cheats for my son it fired up a warning of a trojan downloader trying to get in,it was stopped in its tracks,I traced the website host (a uk hoster)contacted them,within 2 hours they had shut the site down.
