No offence meant, but I quit using Norton when I discovered that Norton didn't see viruses that Kaspersky could see and eradicate...

well I would suggest you use one on your system and have a few free online scans as back and to be sure, as I know that no single anti virus program will catch all virii etc

Yeah I wouldn't use ANY online scanner as my sole AV protection. But it's good when you've found something to have another AV go thru and make sure it's all good. :)

Good old Sasser eh? I like how the numbers went from a few hundred, and industry not so worried, till today (monday) and it exploded into hundreds of thousands and was on the news as a *new* virus that you can now get a patch for. :p

-edit- Why not stress on the news about the patch/2wk old security update on Saturday when they 1st knew about the worm and knew it was gonna get big?

That would be too easy and they figure people wont understand or wont care.
