.pif is the file extension for Program Information File. These files contain executable code. It is usually associated with email viruses and is often part of a double extension on an attachment. For example a file could be called blahblah.txt.pif - to try and fool people into opening the file.
It would be difficult to track down the source of any virus - remember there are millions of computers out there. If Symantec is giving you alerts then it is finding them, which is what it's there for.
