    Windows Security Center and Win32.Zafi.B

    This afternoon I got the same Security Center problem. I was running f-secure, then I tried Norton 360, neither could find anything wrong, but the Security Center message keeps appearing. The reported 1K <randomname> files are not there, nor are the entries in Windows Registry.
    Could it be that Windows detected its arrival, F-Secure removed it but because Windows doesn't recognise (my) F-Secure it stil "thinks" the infection is live?

    Can anyone help??
