Virus Scanner Question

Tue Nov 27, 2001 12:36 am

Hey all,
I am using Norton Antivirus 2001 v.7

My question is why is it that I do a complete virus scan of my computer, fix all the bugs, and then when I go to open a program it says there's an infected file and it needs to be fixed. Why doesn't the full virus scan pick this up? How can I rid my computer of ALL viruses/clean the infected files?


Thanks for your help,
American_4275

different scan parameters, probably.
Full scan usually scans only executable files (exe, com, dll, ocx, etc.), while the realtime scan often checks all files.
