regular virus

  Michael-205600 13:29 19 Mar 2004

Can anybody give ma any advice, as to why I am getting regular virus alerts from Norton, most are Trojans, one that keeps coming up on a regular basis is "backdoor.smother", sometimes Norton can not delete the virus, bcause "access is denied", I then am required to reboot on safe mode, run norton antivirus,and delete the offending virus that way.
I am not too keyed up on trojans etc, so any easy advice would be most gratefully received.

many Thanks

Sorry, I forgot to mention that i am running windows 2000 proffesional through a router, the other machine that is in my office connected to the same router is running Windows XP, this does not appear to be affected.

many thanks
