RE: The Nimda Virus is (was) in my email

Answer:  Yes.
Its not worse than Code Red (and Code Red wasn't that bad).  I worry more about the effect of Norton on your system than I do about Nimda.

Subject: The Nimda Virus is (was) in my email

I sent a .pdf ballot file to a customer for proof.  They answered back that the file had a virus. 
Bought Norton Antivirus 2001 and installed.  I had 67 Nimda infected files. 
The Zednet bulletins say this could be worse than Code Red. 
I cannot repair the infected files and they are currently quarantined.  I have included a snag-it of some of the files and the Zednet warning. 
Question: Can I delete these quarantined files without affecting windows 2000?
