Hi

I've recently had broadband installed (Telewest Blueyonder UK)

Every time I switch on the PC and activate my broadband connection by PC is attacked by the virus "w32.conycspa.g@mm" (its a mass mailing prog).

My Norton AntiVirus program blocks it so it dosen't become active on the PC.

Is there any reason why my PC should be targeted in this way or is it usual?
(if it's usual I can simply set Norton AntiVirus to block this in the background without telling me)

Could there be something on my PC (trojan or the like) which is inviting an attack by this virus.

I'm using Outpost Pro as my firewall.

Any advice would be appreciated

Best Regards

Colin

Here is nortons fix. You probably recieved this as an email for a free screensaver or something to that effect. Ths is a common practice.
