When we bought the Tricaster we decided not to connect it to the internet because of risk of viruses. This to the effect of not installing anti virus software which would require connecting to register, upgrades, etc. The last job we produced required some graphic which our client brought on a pendrive. To our dismay, we found out that this infected us with the VBS.Solow virus which is causing the system to crash. On all our other pcs we have norton installed controls/repair this virus but not eliminating it. It seems that this virus regenerates everytime you double click open a drive. Can somebody help us get rid of it please? Any reply most welcome

Click on the Recovery tab and then on the "instructions for removing worms." link.

Hope that helps.
