I have only just bought a new computer for home use and with it also a new copy of Norton internet security. I have appeared to picked up a trojan virus as the machine keeps flashing up a bubble to say so and offering to direct me to the latest software to get rid of this virus. Norton remains totally silent whilst this is going on. If I dwonload one of the free scanners the bubble directs me to I would seem to be infested by several high risk problems and numerous low or medium risk ones. Norton still remains silent. Am I the subject to some hoax virus problem to sell a debugging program or do I have a virus problem. Is there any reputable web site with a free scanner availible I could download to see if I do have a problem or will I have to buy such a scanner from a shop such as pc world? a reputable dealer. I have found a site called a squared which does seem to pick up some of the problems but still misses this trojan virus. Any thoughts appreciated.

Thank you for your help. The fix given by gudguf has appeared to work. This infection seems to be exactly a spyaxe infection. Luckily I had not bought the software it was directing me to. This does however make me wonder how the companies can get away with this sort of marketing. Thank you.
