    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
