Norton Security found the virus Trojan.Brisv.A that I picked up from a P2P music site (yea, I know, not good hygiene) . Norton sends you to their site for a removal program, which I downloaded and ran. As others have reported here recently, this did not seem to do much, and when I scanned the system, the virus was still there (it was in what was called a mp3 file). [I am running Windows Vista(64bit) on a Dell with Intel Quad processor].

From advice on another site, I tried the following.
--Restart in Safe Mode
--Run Norton removal program (when finished, the program now tells me that the virus was removed).
--I then went to the directory with the infected file and I was able to delete it completely (also from Recyle Bin)

After this, I can not longer find any evidence of the presence of this virus. Norton scans come up clean.
Is there some other way of confirming that the virus is totally gone?
