I have just recieved a Microsoft Update for a worm removal tool & amongst other things it states that as this update has appeared on my system it is likely it is infected....how can I be if I have Norton fully running? Is this a genuine MS update??????

Cheers.

If this was in an e-mail - do not run it.

It's probably fake. Update Norton and run a scan, if that shows up clean then you are safe.

It was a MS update as in the little MS icon that appears in the taskbar when updates are available...any ideas?

I know you have AV software, but if you are worried click here and get a checkup....TT
