61291, as of june 18th... well it is here at least. more than the first post, but that was in january. meshes pretty well with that last guy's 61,245-ish from a week or two ago, imo.

Yup.

Pity I didn't but any shares in NAV.

Mind you, they're unlikely to drop. Even if there's a massive internet bomardment of viruses, these numbers keep going up. :smile:

I don't even use Norton, and those numbers are often false. They are not always real, since Norton protects you from all the viruses they know off. And they don't know about all the viruses out there.

Do you know of ay Anti Virus software which protects you from all viruses, including the unknown ones?

SOPHOS antivirus protects me from 76759 viruses, trojans, and worms.

but that means absolutely nothing, as an anti-virus company can release cures for 5 variants of a same virus while another will release only 4 and offer as good a protection.

yet, I would not trust my network to Norton.

Ditto here w/ AVG. Even does a nice lockout on the email.

You guys with Norton keep updating. :lol: Eventually your HDDs will be maxed out with updates there'll be no more room for viruses. ROFL!!!

Norton Av can't delete a file while its being executed.

What you need to do is kill the process using task manager or process views then try again.

Really I don't see why NAV doesn't offer to kill the proccess for you.
