Norton AntiVirus is designed to help keep your computer virus-free. In most cases, an infected file can be repaired automatically. In some cases, you may need to take further action.
In Mac OS 8.1-9.x, if a virus is found and Auto-Repair is enabled, the file is automatically repaired. In Mac OS X v10.1, the file is automatically repaired if you have Automatic Repair On checked on the General tab of the Preferences window.
See “If Norton AntiVirus can’t repair a file” on page 81.
If the virus is not repaired, the file can be removed. Removing a file prevents it from reinfecting your computer or damaging other files.
