Yesterday Norton 2010 let fakealert trojan in. I downloaded mbam to a thumb drive with another computer and got rid of it but now Windows Security says my Norton is out of date and won't let Explorer open (except for one window of the Norton site) and only downloads the text in Outlook Express. (I'm writing this on Firefox.) It doesn't help to click I'll self-monitor virus protection. I'm running Windows XP.

Here's the mbam report.
