well, i've just had the other day the weirdest experience with NAV.
the first virus ever detected on this machine, and it's had NAV2003 since day 1. this viruswasn't detected by the AutoProtect feature (NAV didn't catch it on its own) - it got through??? but was detected during a manual scan.
the NAV report was:
Description: The compressed file movie0045.pif within Unknown00000000.data within D:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\CP2F45UJ\ShowLetter is infected with the W32.Sobig.F@mm virus.

now the strange thing is that i went (in Windows Explorer) to see that file/directory, it wasn't there!!!
the file itself had been of course removed by NAV, but the directory D:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files did not
contain a subdirectory named Content.IE5 (it did not contain any
strange, i don't know what to make of it.
and i don't know why/how it got past NAV (which has served me well till now).
i also don't understand this strange issue of the location
of the infected file - within Temporary Internet Files - does this mean it was loaded "inside" some html page?
