Hi, I need some (maybe a lot of) help here.
I have a compaq notebook running xp home sp 2; Norton internet security 2007, ad aware se personal, super anti spyware, spybot search and destroy.
About half hour ago a bluetooth connection called SymbOS.Commwarrior.B was detected on my comp and this was immediately followed by a norton notification that SymbOS.Commwarrior.B was detected and blocked. but even after this the bluetooth icon in the system tray was lit up and a notification saying something like:'SymbOS.Commwarrior.B connected successfully to PIM service' came on. I immediately turned off the bluetooth services. later when i turned it on again within a minute the system tray notification came and showed my blue tooth icon as connected! i switched bluetooth off again and ran a quick norton scan but nothing was detected. since then i have turned bluetooth on again but have not got any notification and system tray bluetooth icon has not showed any activity yet.
last week i had downloaded a few sony ericsson themes for my phone from esato.net, these might have been infected, though i had run a virus check on them before loading on my phone.
Is my computer still infected, what was the meaning of all those notifications and the bluetooth activity? is even my phone infected?
what should i do now?
please guide

Hi, thanks for the advice.
My phone's not a Sybian OS phone, and is also not showing any signs of the virus activity. On the other hand it's my comp that's shown strange activity (as explained above). As if some infected device is trying to connect with the comp where as there's no other device anywhere within range.
