I have an ascii output of the thing via a strange concoction of refusals [a
webserver I manage booted it back to me in ascii and it was viewable
without activation in my email message.
If any one wants a look, let me know and I'll forward a copy.
BTW: my machine was clean. AND the symantic fix it is a good way to go if
you don't want to scan with Norton. I heard on the radio this morning that
a key indicator of infection is that NAV truly is disabled. so the only
way to fix may be to use the Fxbgbear.exe . It too isn't very big.
