    anti-virus programs like Norton or AVG look for worms but
    progs like trojan hunter are more specialized to look for trojans.
    Are there programs specifically set to hunt for worms? Presumably
    they would be better at it than say, Norton.

    my dog can find computer worms better than Norton.

    You best bet is to use a firewall. It tracks activity that goes out to the Internet and alerts you if the same thing or very similar things have been sent many times in a short period of time.

    There may be worm hunters out there, but I don't know any.
