Bloodhound Exploit 13 - Norton Internet Security - Vista business

Hi, I am getting constant pop-up from Norton saying that it has blocked a
exploit 13 and that my computer is secure. Norton says it's a vista problem.
This has something to do with jpg files. The same files were running on XP
Pro with Norton Internet Security 2007 with no problem. From what I can tell
others are having the same problem. Anyone know of a fix?????? Thanks John

Bloodhound used to be Norton's name for their alleged "Heuristic
Analysis" which does not identify specific viruses but rather tries to
identify "Virus-Like" behaviors.

Norton takes every opportunity to tell you how well it's protecting you,
but in fact it's a crock and is more often a nuisance than an asset.

I think you are basically relying upon Norton to fix this problem..
