Norton AV Finds "Unknown" Virus in NTDETECT.COM & PAGEFILE.SYS

PSS ID Number: 102407

Article Last Modified on 11/20/2003



The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Windows NT Server 3.1

This article was previously published under Q102407


SYMPTOMS

Norton Anti-Virus version 2.1 detects an "unknown" virus in the NTDETECT.COM and PAGEFILE.SYS files.

CAUSE

Norton Anti-Virus interprets NTDETECT.COM as an MS-DOS .COM file and PAGEFILE.SYS as an MS-DOS device driver file. Since these interpretations are incorrect, Norton Anti-Virus incorrectly reports an "unknown" virus.

RESOLUTION

You can ignore these messages.
