Re: malicious software trying to install on my computer while surfing on DS 2x today.

Norton does not normally pick up the spy/adware viruses.

This happened to me a lot when I first started coming to this site and I did the above until I got some anti-virus programs downloaded (adaware, spybot and avg) no problems since.
