While scanning with SOPHOS I encountered 2 virus, Blaster A and Nachi A. When I used the Symantec Blaster worm program to erase these virus it said that it had not found any virus.
Which is correct adn what should I do?

i take it you are using xp? or ME? if so you need to disable system restore while cleansing for complete removal.

Thanks Johnny - where do I disable sytem restore please and then do I run SOPHOS or the symantec program?

Then use Sophos. Blaster is a scanner for the most common viruses only...
