    Hi future shepard,

    I've moved your thread from the General Topics forum over into this forum where it will get better attention.

    It sounds like you may have caught a virus that Norton isn't picking up on for some reason.

    Can you tell us what the name of the file is that you downloaded? If you still have the file you downloaded, you can upload it to Kaspersky for a scan (if it's not too big)

    Then do a full system scan with one of these on-line antivirus sites and see if they pick up anything: Free Services

    Let us know what the scan results are.

    Regards,

    wow, that must have taken some time to download! :eek:

    I see you have another thread over here where you've received some helpful replies.

    So not to have two duplicate threads going at once, I'll lock this one now. ;)
