Virus problem

By jeremy ·
When I boot up my pc my recycle bin icon is replaced with a duke nukem head. I'm running Norton AntiVirus 2003 Pro with the most updated pattern files and have done a full system scan on both of my computers. On the other one there are small red dots in the bottom left hand corner of the icons. Is this being caused by a virus, and why isnt norton picking it up? If its possible that there is a virus, are there any programs that would catch any kind of virus that I could use to ensure a virus free system? Thanks.

Due to the nature of viruses there is no total cure. Any pc of any kind is vulnerable. No exceptions.
Have you contacted Norton through their site?
They do take up to 3 days somtimes to answer.
I also have SpywareNuker on my pc's as extra backup as well as Zone alarm Pro.
I would contact norton now as you may be a first "contact" machine.
As long as "things" keep writing them as well as worms and trojans and maleware and etc, WE are all vulnerable to attack.
Hope this helps.
