I have the latest Symantec NAV with the Live Update updated to the most recent date and still a virus played over the NAV.

I couldn`t connect to any websites related to Symantec nor could I update my virus definitions.

I don`t know if the virus did any harm to my computer, but at least I got rid of it.

CWS.Smartsearch was found in my computer and that`s what messed up my NAV.

Download the program (CWshredder.exe) if you have a similar problem.

CWS, Cool Web Search is not a virus in the strictest sense, it's a hybrid. It's more of a malware proggie than anything. NAV 2004 will detect it as a threat, not a virus, during a full system scan, and remove it if you choose to do so. Other problems that you will face, after removal, are entries in the win.ini file giving errors on startup. CWshredder will fix those for you. Adaware, and AVG, will also detect and remove CWS.

No virus software will protect you from a new virus/variant, just from the old ones
