About Errors 6000/9000 (Norton, XP/Vista)

Norton 360 installed and it’s not picking this up either, although it was a Norton advisory that alerted me to the problem on my original machine (the Vista one).  Since this is a network-based trojan, it’s barely possible the Vista machine was infected by the XP machine, even with file sharing off.  It took about five hours or so of work to get Norton 360 up and running.  I’m pretty sure this is the “backdoor” virus, and the Vista machine got it off an El Reg link, while the XP machine was just cruising unprotected.  No Trojans against trojans, as it were.  And this would mean that this is currently being exploited for and by click-jacking purposes.
