    I think the Trojans were bested by a wooden horse full of Greeks.  Viruses and worms are way to smart for this... Not even Norton can stop them...

    You should stuff a horse full of Super Anti-Spyware.

    Virus - is a small computer program written to alter the way a computer operates. It should meet two criteria

    1.) It must execute itself.
    2.) It must replicate itself.

    Worms - Worms are programs that replicate themselves from system to system without the use of a host file.This is in contrast to viruses, which requires the spreading of an infected host file.

    Trojans - Trojan horses contain malicious code that when triggered cause loss, or even theft, of data.
