    I'm running windows xp pro.Zone alarm and Nortons anti virus 2003.Yesterday
    i had themsblast worm.I have since patched xp and deleted the virus,and run
    a clear scan.Today i was double checking and done another scan.When it
    started checking a folder in the c drive it was there for about 1/2 hour
    before eventually stopping the scan. The folder is only 7 mb big but when i
    checked it, it was showing as 345 gig in the properties.I think i may have
    another virus,but the nortons dats are upto date.When i open the folder up
    there are subfolders and instead of names are small icons lile triangles
    squares etc.Any one any idea ?
    TIA

    run scandisk and let it fix the errors.
    then run defrag.
