Try this link to Symantec for w32.kwbot :click here If you use the Symantec search facility you will find any known virus however the W32.Pnfi may have been mis-spelt because I can`t find it !

im running norton2003 pro fully updated from the net Norton detects 3 viruses all w32.pinf but doesnt remove them
Have you followed the Symantec advice to remove the registry change?Have you tried to delete the files in Safe Mode.Check in the file Properties whether they are Read Only and/or System and /or Hidden files. You can try changing the properties then dleting them.If all else fails you could boot up in DOS and get to them to delete them that way, though it's a bit messy to get to them sometimes.Do you know how they came to get into your system - did Norton fail to stop them getting in?
You may need to disable System Restore click here
