hi all,this is my first posting,so be kind.im using AVG Antivirus and Symantec Corporate Edition.AVG keeps detecting a Trojan virus,but i cant send it to the virus vault or delete it.Symantec doesnt ever detect the trojan when running a scan.Will this trojan affect my PC?Any advice would be much appreciated.im using XP Pro.

The problem is probably caused because you are using more than one anti-virus program.

NEVER run multiple AV programs - they will always clash with each other.

Make your choice and get rid of one.

I've been searching around these forums and NOD32 seems to be very very popular as an AV. It hasn't been widely publized yet but the latest version also covers Adware and Spyware. Do a search on NOD32 and you'll see for yourself. I've heard Symantec is a bit of a hog.
