A friend asked me if i would put some music on his ipod and when I plugged the ipod in, norton (which I run for my firewall as i prefer it to windows) popped up saying it detected win32.sillydc under status it says removed but when reading up on it, It says the virus can load back up in the hkey registry and recommended I do a full scan. My norton is out of date so it wouldn't allow me to do this. some one else told me i need a registry scanner for something like this cause it can come back at anytime. It was only detected that one time off the usb port that the ipod was on, Is my computer still infected or am I just being paranoid?
My computer runs on windows vista Home premium service pack 1
system type: 32-bit operating system
the virus was discovered on j:\fun.xls.exe (which was the ipod)
Any help/advice is greatly appreciated, Thank you all very much in advance.
