I did something very stupid. I thought my Toshiba laptop was protected. It has XP home and 2 GB of RAM. It has all updated Norton virus protection and SpySweeper. I had the no so bright idea of attaching an infected harddrive via a USB cable in an enclosure to clean thishard drive and then put it back into another computer fro m whence it came. Unfortunately, there must be some undectable exe file which generates infected zob files which is now on my laptop. My virus protection catches them, but it is almost like a DOS attack because the messages of detection and capture are continual and I cannot use the computer. I have scanned it twice with Norton and Spysweeper. They catch the files, but not the exe file that seems to be generating them. I took my laptop off the network and disabled file recovery. Norton just says to run a Norton scan . That really is not good enough. I went into the registry and could not find anything that I recognized as suspcious. Help!!
