i have a question.. the other day i was looking at some pics on my pc and i scanned a few with norton antivirus.. they are all .jpg BUT when i scan some of the pics norton said they were ok but said it scanned 2 files .. others show it was one file scanned.. how can 2 files be scanned on a single pic?? is that a virus??

That's normal behavior and it will happen to any image file.
Windows creates a hidden thumbnail preview of the image file and that is why you see "Total items scanned: 2" when you only scanned a single .jpg file.
Norton scan the image and the hidden file.
