The problem is a bug in the NAV 2001 signatures.  I took the swig.bat
file that Dan M was kind enough to send me and ran NAV on it.  Sure
enough it said that it was a virus!  I have complained to Norton for
what its worth.  Hopefully this post will save some other nervous nellie
like me some time and worry.
