after clicking the trouble shooter tab for my modem, Norton i.s. 2002 found a malicious script named Help.ctr.exe.
needless to say i done a full system scan and it found nothing,
has anyone else had this and what is it ?

It could be. Both Norton and McAfee do heuristics scanning to find code that could be bad but isn't listed as a virus.

True but it would never hurt on the outside chance that Norton didn't delete and it could also give a little more info but he was looking for ideas so I give him mine. And the version Norton I've got I've got config to clean a virus from the file if that fails quarantine the file then I can do with it as I please but on the other hand u r most likely right

Well that is what I get for typing the url as opposed to coping and pasting. Thanks jawshoouh and I did fix it in mine and it works now. I might post a different one since u got that covered jawshoouh. Also need to relearn how to spell but I think the spelling error I saw
