    In doing my weekly maintenance, I got notice from NAV that it had detected
    and removed Backdoor.Graybird a trojan.

    I ran Norton and followed the procedure from the Symantec site. I ran
    regedit to remove the subkeys, but the entries that were supposed to be
    there weren't.

    Rebooted my system and began to use the pc and there was no problem until I
    tried to get my updates for Webroot Spysweeper. Then, the message popped
    up again about Backdoor.Graybird, NAV & Webroot Spysweeper?

    I also tried Trend-micro House call online scanner but the results were
    negative. PC is running just fine. Before I contact the vendors, does
    anyone know of any issues between NAV & Spysweeper? Thanks.

    If you scroll the posts in this newsgroup to the thread that begins with
    "Strange trojan (?) Backdoor.Graybird", which is about 7 posts below yours,
    you will find the answer.

    It appears to be a False Positive declaration.
