Linda,Wes tells me that you need a spyware program and that an antivirus program will not pick up problems like you have had. You really need two spyware programs, as they do not all pick up the same intrusions. Best of luck with your bank.
that's awful, what happened to you. haven't you any recourse or insurance? Is it really just a total, irrecoverable loss? Isn't it possible to file suit against Norton for negligence and misrepresentation?

Subject: off topic but urgent for online banking
I am writing this to avoid this happening to them. I was using Norton antivirus and never had a problem until now. When I went to the bank today, my entire bank account was stolen. Apparently there is a virus called bankfraud and norton did not pick it up and it is not listed on their site to my knowledge. All you have to do is go to an online bank site and the same may happen to you if you use norton. I went online to find a free scan and found one called Stopsign. I'm not trying to promote spam but all the money I saved is history in the 28 years I worked and I don't want this happening to someone else. It is an online subscription and it caught this virus and some others norton didn't and you get other benefits and storage space. My machine is now "bankfraud" free but too late. If anyone wants to contact me privately about this, my machine is infection free. So the bottom line is if you use norton, don't go to online banking sites.
