Hi Art or Frederic or whoever LOL!

I am having a problem with F-Prot for DOS finding infected files within
the latest (6/25 and 6/26) Norton Anti Virus 2001 virus definitions.

I'm using the latest version of F-Prot for DOS (3.13) with updated macro
and def files.  Set to scan compressed, archives and heuristic...

The files being flagged as being infected with a "new or modified
variant of Trivial" are these:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Symantec\Virus


C:\Program Files\Common Files\Symantec\Virus

This is happening on both my WinME desktop and Win9SE laptop.  Same 2
Norton AV files being flagged.

My Norton 2001 scan shows clean
TrendMicro Housecall scan shows clean
PandaScan shows clean
TrojanHunter 3.5 shows clean

F-prot is also flagging a file on my WinME desktop:


Says it "could be a boot sector virus dropper"

I cleared all my restore points and rebooted a few times, ran F-Prot
and I got another message about the same problem in a new restore .cpy

Any help, advice or ideas?

Thank you,
