    Hi guys.

    Have just formatted my comp and installed Norton Antibot, ESET AV & Outpost for testing. NAB imidiatly caught Nimda.E http://www.auditmypc.com/process/csrss.asp (csrss.exe located in windows\config\ folder... not the real csrss.exe in system32 folder...;)). Sadly the fully updated ESET AV didnt catch it or recognise it as the worm it is, but well- Thats why its good too have a second layer of protection :) Outpost reported it to, but I didnt notice the location of the file so I just allowed it :argh: o_O :D

    If it is a reformatted computer, why does it already have viruses on it?

    Haha True :argh:

    I already messed up windows so I used my new image. Sadly the crap virus is in there (8 hours building it wasted somehow even though detected by some AV's :cautious: :D).

    But anyway. Wanted to try your great setup - and bang, good old Dr. detected the s**t right away :D :cool:

    Running very good btw :thumb:
