spotlight v100 virus

Specs: Windows XP Home SP3
Hi, I've just found some files associated with Spotlight v 100 on my USB drive. I deleted these but am worried that it might have infected my PC running XP and my laptop running Vista. There is very little information on the Internet about this virus. I am running AVG Free on both machines but virus scans come out negative.
Any info on this greatly appreciated.

Nicko

Thanks for reply. I'm downloading nod32 now. As an asside, is this a good antivirus. I used CA for years but slowed my sytem and tech support was not good. AVG Free is OK but I've read that the paid version also slows systems. What I want is something reliable but light on system resources. Perhaps nod32 is the one?

Thanks again
Nicko

I downloaded the 1 month demo version of ESET NOD32 and run a scan. Result was no infections. I hope that means I'm clear?

I'll keep going with NOD32 and, if it proves good, buy a full copy when my month is up.

Thanks for your help

...don`t worry...
i recommend a backup of your files for security considerations...generally, not just for viruses

Well, I'm glad about that - makes sense as I took a load of stuff on my USB stick to a Graphic Design shop just full of Macs! Thought Macs didn't get viruses though?
