Help

Norton found Reboot.exe but unable to fix!!!!!!

Can you help?

(which is why Norton can't help) it's a small DOS based application which allows you to set a reboot delay via a command line switch.

Forget it and carry on computing.

so for the sake of tidiness I'll move it there now.

Just Norton being over -reactive i suspect. click here

Some viruses use legitamate files to perform tasks to make up for the writers lack of (ahem) "skill". ie if the writer wants the PC to reboot but can't code for it they can drop this file and call it instead. Same effect.

Doesn't mean the file on its own is a virus though...
