    Norton Internet Security didn't detect it, nor make any effort to remove it. I spent an hour "chatting" with technical support @ Symantec. Their solution was for me to wade thru a 63 page manual or pay them an additional $99 for them to eradicate it.

    I had the idea that Symantec/Norton was watching for stuff like this, but apparently not.
