Sophos giving 1000 warnings!
I've got a laptop and the Sophos popup (or a very good fake ) is popped up and saying that 1000's of .htm Smart Notebook file is infected with vbs/inor-aa (and other things occaionsally as well)!
Surely this is shome short of mistook!
Anyone had this sort of thing - is it liable to be real.
Currently running an MBAM scan - found nothing yet

Send Sophos the file and let them see if it's really infected or a false positive.

yep - going to spend zero time on it apart from transferring docs to another laptop - luckily I've 10 of the same type and the others are just used by pupills so we can sort quickly.
Its just really annoying that normal people (e.g non-geeks) (the teacher is a friend of mine and doesn't mess arouund with computers - just uses them) can catch these sort of things even though the've got AV
