    Default Notyon Internet security complaining of suspicous,ad in spybiot file

    Hi,

    Last couple of times spybot has gone to update itself today Norton keeps coming back saying it's found a problem with a file and says it's been infected with Suspicous.AD whenever it seems spybot goes to update itself today has anybody been having this problem?

    The message I'm getting from Norton is:

    Hello jdtaylor,

    It looks like a false positive.

    Thank you for letting us know, as Norton flagged it could you report this in their forum please.

    I've done that but according to the forum you have to use a separate forn which I have done and hopefully it'll be rectified.
