Hi,

I don't follow! If Norton blocked the trojan, why do you need another antivirus software?

I know but someone told me you need a Trojan scanner/remover as well as Norton Internet Security Firewall / Virus Programme?

Hi,

Norton Firewall will stop any trojans scanning and accessing your ports and Antivirus will detect/clean any trojans already installed. Perhaps you were told to install another trojan detector in case Norton doesn't catch new ones...but having LiveUpdate update your system on a regular basis (weekly) should keep you fairly 'safe'!

Microsoft offers a Baseline Security Analyzer that you can install to test for open ports.

Port Scanners:

GFI LANguard Network Security Scanner (30 day eval):

Here is another good port scanner (Freeware) TRY THIS ONE!
SuperScan - http://www.webattack.com/get/superscan.shtml and select "Scan all ports from 1 to 65535"
