Hi, my computer is coming up with a message symantec 2003 could not clean 2 instances of trojan vunbo. At the same time firefox started working for a minute at a time then became unavaible. I use a cable modem, with zone alarm firewall, and firefox as my browser. I have updated my virus definitions.

    I presume you mistyped; it should be vundo, not vunbo.  Symantec has a removal tool for trojan.vundo here:

    Also, it's been reported that Symantec's tool should be run in "Safe" mode.
