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?
