This doesn't really have to do with virus removal.
My Norton Anti-virus scan was coming up with an entry for Hacktool, with no "dot something or other." It was really starting to worry me and after a bit of clicking in their not-so-intuitive design, it turns out that the offending file was in a download folder. It was a simple license number finder that I had downloaded a long time ago from CNET. Quite harmless.

I'm pleased that Symantec can find little bad things like that but I had wished that it was a little more clear where it had found it.

This probably isn't an earth shattering post but I thought I'd share anyway.
