I was over at a friend's dorm today and she showed me her latest computer woe, Norton Anti-Virus said it had found Nimda all over her computer. To my knowledge, the infected files were all .eml templates from Outlook Express. Anyway, I assumed it was Nimda.E and ran the removal tool provided on Symantec's website, but the tool said the virus wasn't found on any system files. I ran the Nimda.A removal tool and the same thing happened. So what we have here is a case of Norton Anti-Virus finding and classifying the virus as Nimda... but being unable to remove it. The provided removal tool supposedly fixes the virus... but can't find it. Where do I go from here?
