    I use nod32 with my xp pro 64 bit
    2 days in a row I recieved this
    both times nod32 caught it and allowed it to be deleted
    but shouldn't windows defender catch that?
    "Time Module Object Name Threat Action User Information

    multiple infiltrations Connection terminated WARPSIX\home"
    i worry because my son is on "myspace" and gets lots of trash but the
    warning came when the browser was parked on the drudgereport anybody else?
    and do you know a different or better fix?
    and i have all the updates as of writing this

    It is usually best to have more lines of defense against malware.
    Relying on a single program is not enough, because some companies
    work quicker than others. Obviously you can only run one virus-scanner
    at a time, but multiple spyware-scanners is not a bad idea.
