No it said that it could not put it into quarentine and said that it had put it into a safe file.But a window keeps popping up saying..

Object name: C:/Wimdow/Sbnet/ShowBehind.exe.
Virus name: Trojan Horse
Acion Taken: Unable 2 repair this file

It has an ok box at the bottom but wen i klik it it dosn't dissappear it jus flikkers and reappears also the X in the top right corner will not work. I looked in the Quarentine files on Norton and it says 0

N E Ideas?

Maybe you need a dedicated anti-trojan program, such as Tauscan click here
Like many anti-virus programs, Tauscan provides free updates at regular intervals.

You will be allowed a free trial period and then it'll cost around £20 - £25 if you want to buy.
