i was wondering ... can webpages have viruses in them.. i dont mean going into the webpage .. just the page itself that is store in the windows directory in your computer.. i have been trying to send a friend a few of my websites that i go though so he can check them out and my sever is telling em that i have a virus on my computer but i have twice done a full computer scan .. i have updates with nortans virus.. but it only happens to the winzip file that has all the pages in it.. i have even scan the winzip file and no viruses come up.. only when i go to send it in outlook express! what and how can i get around this! thanks

Webpages itself no , but files stored in it yes.
If the Norton couldnt find anything try to send via hotmail, it scans the attachment for virus. But you need to fix your computer, try another antivirus like AVG www.grisoft.com it is free but too heavy , install update it scan your drive and then remove it ok?
Hope it helps

I don't know if the webpages can contain viruses, but the scrpting languages that some people uses on then can call malicious routines, and also files that can be dangerous to your pc. right know by example, the so called "hackers" or "carackers" pages are filled with files infected by viruses, care should be taken when you go by those pages, a example of this:

Yep they can have virus, in all those ways...active x and java applets, as well as in the files stored in the web site....as long u go to recognized sites, big ones or comercial/business sites...(not thoose personal HP's, specially the ones with spy/hacker contents....)....u'll not be in danger...

One of those virus infected my friends pc when he was searching for roms on the web.

It's simple, really. If you're going to a site you know you can trust, go with IE. If you're looking around for various other items, use Mozilla, since most viruses target IE.

I must admit that sometimes I wonder if VirusScan is really working. I haven't got a virus in the last 2-3 years, so sometimes I think that virusscan is not working. About browsers, I use mostly IE, but now that you're saying that Mozilla is safer, maybe I'll just try using it more often.
