Hi,

I have Norton antivirus software and firewall. A full system scan today picked up what Norton has classified as a trojan horse within a file called brodagf.class, which was located at c:\user\users\appdata\locallow\java\deployment\cache\6.0\13\5754a58d-6e927a90.

Norton says this has been on my system since 14th Jan 2010, although I have definitely run full system scans since then.

What I am trying to find out is, although this file has now been removed from my computer, how worried should I be about an external computer having accessed my system between 14th January and now? I don't do internet banking so I'm not worried about my passwords etc being stolen, but I would rather someone not be able to access Word files etc saved on my hard drive. Would my Norton firewall protect me from that kind of intrusion, even if this virus has been on my system for some time?

I don't have any of my files set up for sharing, and Norton blocks filesharing automatically anyway.

Very many thanks for any advice.

Sally
