IF YOUR NORTON A/V PROGRAM

IF YOUR NORTON A/V PROGRAM HAS BEEN GOING CRAZY, you probably already know about the latest e-mail worm, called “Mydoom” or “Novarg” by antivirus companies.

Because of Outlook’s previous vulnerability to the program, if you can access your email online, rather than pulling it down with Outlook, I’d try to pre-screen as much of it as possible and delete anything with an attachment from someone you don’t recognize–maybe even from people you do recognize.

And obviously, running updates from your antivirus program’s provider and from Microsoft is probably a wise move as well.
