Hve tried unsuccessfully to remove this 4 Rated Threat which showed up after an Advanced Scan.
Successfully downloaded Power Point 2007 & thought this wld do the trick but threat still shows after rescan.
Offending file is pptview.exe residing in Programs in MS Office 2003 folder.
Naturally I dont want to uninstall my MS Office 2003.
Is my only recourse to set up an Ignore rule for it & if so will/does it continue to remain a threat?
