Have been bitten by the W32.Licum virus/worm without loss of any files or executable programs. Running NAV 2005 on my Win Me system and have a Netgear router. Several times each day Norton finds the W32.Licum worm and qurantines the infected file. I have run scans in SAFE mode, and run the standard battery of malware removal programs (Ad-aware, Spybot S & D, etc.). Norton and Housecall report my system as clean. I have read only one post in this forum where a fellow user asks how any software can find a worm/virus when in fact the antivrus programs have already cleaned the system and reported same system as clean? My question concerns the apparent re-infection of my system each day. I assumed the hardware (Netgear router) acted as a firewall for my Win Me system. I ran a SEARCH for dl.exe and it is not found on my system. MS has a security bulletin (Microsoft Security Bulletin MS03-026) which has information on the OS vulnerability hole, but Windows Me is not supported (in fact, the bulletin states MS Windows Me is not affected). Symantec's website lists Win Me as an OS susceptible to W32.Licum. Any advice? Should I purchase a separate firewall program, and might this eliminate the reinfection, or is the worm hiding somewhere on my system and can't be seen?

Thanks in advance.
