I'm on a modem - have only 2 sites up - redhotpawn and playchess.de
But I've been on a redhotpawn window both times
Any help or answers would be appreciated
I've no experience what that Sniffer Virus but you may find some answers on the web:
Looks like Norton has got problems to get rid of the virus. Simply deleting a 0 lenght text file won't remove a virus from your system. So you don't get the virus from this site. You simply didn't manage to get rid of a virus you've already on your system.
Try an Adware-Removal Software instead of Norton.
