Symantec AntiVirus Threat Found in System Center

We have Symantec AntiVirus on our Windows 2003 domain with Symantec System Center install on the DC and Symantec AntiVirus 10.0.0.1000 client install on the local machines.

In Symantec System Center a few machines are reporting Threat Found but when I do a scan on the machines there is no Threat found.

I can right click and clear the Threat message but after a while the message comes back

Any ideas?

you need to check what threat is reporting back on symantec's website and see if there are any extra steps needed to remove this threat

Here's a link to their Threat Centre:

I would also recommend using a second anti virus program on at least one of the computers to see if that can remove the detected threat

It could be the Internet Cookies which generally remains after the users surf the net and comes back everyday since user browse everyday.

Just my guess
