Operating System Version:  Windows 2000 Professional
Problem Application Name & Version:  Norton Antivirus
Problem Hardware Make & Model:  Pentium II, Computrend
Error Messages:

I have been accessing a lot of newsgroups lately, and it is no coincidence that I have been increasingly exposed to more viruses during this time.  I've been told that newsgroups are rampant with viruses and trojans.  I have Norton System Works 2003, but I don't know how (or if) I can configure it to scan binaries/files/messages/posts in each newsgroup I visit.  Is this possible?  Thank you :-)

I don't think Norton Antivirus will scan the messages but if an attachment is infected by a virus or a trojan, Antivirus will detect it (assuming it is up-to-date)
