w32 spybot worm infection

  Luggie 12:33 04 Sep 2004

This worm was picked up by Norton Antivirus. The infected file was immediately quarantinned then deleted. Upon recanning with NA this worm wasn't detected, indicating that it had been removed. Will it have affected my computer in any other way even though it is't detected by NA. Would changes have occured in my registry before i had deleted the file, the file was removed from my system within 10 min of being detected?
Having read NA info on website it affects registry and this needs backing up before any changes are made

It will be OK, Norton will have removed the worm and your registry will be OK. It might be an idea to turn off system restore and then turn it back on......and it might be an idea to lay off Kazaa ;-)))
