on you nav warning dialog box click on the link which will be the name of the virus. this will take you to the nav web page for this virus. then goto control panel/system/remove system restore tick for system restore,click on the highlighted word tool back ion the web page and run the tool.
this should clear the virus.

run the tool a second time to confirm it has gone empty recycle bin and norton bin then reboot and put the tick back in system restore.

the latest version of this worm is not stopped by the xp update I found to my cost.

Thanks for the links,used FixWelch and it seems to have cleared it out.It was my fault as i was doing clean instal on new computer and was on the internet for about ten mins. setting up my connection so as AV and firewall could get updates when i loaded them.I'll do it the other way round in future.

david.h will do what you suggest about system restore, recycle bin etc.
