I am running NortonSystemWorks on two a notebook running XP.  The machine consistently gets the above error message when running LiveUpdate. I am unable to update my virus definitions.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled the package, which did not help and in fact made matters worse as now the only virus definitions I have going are the ones out of the box.  The software worked fine for a couple of months after I bought it, so I suspect this is related to an one of several upgrades I did to XP and to IE.  Can anyone get me around this?

This was correctly identified as a virus, but after following the instructions on the Symantec page, I discovered that I had three of them and they worked in cooperation to negate the Symantec solution and in fact made things so bad that I had to scratch both machines.  Good ID on the virus though,
