Antivirus Questions - Norton Antivirus xmldso.cab file. Symevent?

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Nicole Kidman, Aug 16, 2003.

  1. Hello,
    I recently installed Norton antivirus and it seems it's unable to activate
    the startup and auto protect function. Every time I startup I get the error
    "Unable to start symevent" error. Also I recently ran windows update and
    Norton antivirus made me delete this file:

    C:\WINNT\Java\classes\xmldso.cab

    The XMLDSO.CAB file. Was this a mistake by Norton Anitvirus or has the
    virus infected windows update?

    Thanks for any help you guys can give.
    Much Thanks!
    Nicole

    SYMPTOMS
    When you install the Microsoft Virtual Machine (VM), you may receive an
    alert from Norton AntiVirus 2000 about a "WM.Niceday Macro Virus" but
    "with a different, harmless payload macro" in the Xmldso.cab file (the XML
    classes that are included in the Microsoft VM).
