Trojan Horse

Hi

Done a Full System Scan with Norton on XP, and it Quarantined 12 items. All are Trojan Horse.
According to Norton They were originally found in C:\Documents and Settings\Kieran\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\AFOJBWHO
The file names are called
index3(1).htm
index3[10].htm
index3[11].htm
index3[12].htm
index3[15].htm
index3[2].htm
index3[3].htm
index3[4].htm
index3[6].htm
index3[7].htm
index3[8].htm
index3[9].htm

Should I leave them in the Quarantine or delete them via norton?
As the whole family uses this PC I not sure if the worm came from an email or from a website. Which is more likely? and

Should I be worried about these Trojans

Kind Regards

Kieran

Unless you can give us a name then theres no way of knowing how serious they might be but generally not much to worry about really...

Norton doesnt name them as any specific one kind of trojan, but does name them all as Trojan horse

kurd70,

If you use norton full, time it is more than likely the files have come from a website.

Best bet is to delete the files.
