Sorry guy's i use Norton 8.1 Corporate, and I'm sticking with it, as far as i'm concerned there is NOTHING out there that is safer. Personal firewall sucks big time, period !!!!

As i said , i know it was not my XP box as it is a fresh install (about 2 days old at time of posting). It was samba broadcasting externally that was generating log files. I've been through all the log files created now, and noone successfully got in. It was just logging failed connection attempts. Now i have samba configured correctly for version 3, it's happy as a jay bird.

Oh and catman_za, may i point out that the root kit you gave is a dead link. I did decide to take a look at that one. Perhaps they have norman installed and it's just so secure

Not to start a war here or anything, but Norton is a joke.

Kaspersky is the only ant-virus that exists for me. It too works well with Linux, and I've never heard of Norman.

Please avoid the appearance of advertising any products. You're welcome to give your experience, but in the world of software there's never a perfect product that fits everyone's needs or is 100% effective at what it's supposed to do.

One might speculate why products like Norton, McAfee, Trend, and Sophos do so well in the commercial market if Norman is so thoroughly superior as you suggest...
IMHO Norman beats Norton anyday of the week, I speak from bitter experience!

I get mail from all over the world from peolple I have never met let alone corresponded with or who even appear in my address book, all of that mail was generated by viruses from folks who are running norton antivirus.

The mail just never stops! I have spam rules set-up, but that does not stop the flow of mail
