This is the setup
A Windows 2000 Workgroup, with one of the computers with a shared printer connected with a parallel cable (print server).

This computer keeps receiving in its queue prints jobs that print out garbage.
In the print queue it says remote downlevel or something like that. It also says that it is coming from one of the computers in the group. I turned off this computer in the group,

I tried Stinger.exe
I tried an update norton Antivirus scan
Any ideas on what else to try?? Or has anyone heard of this virus???

Your help is appreciated!!

Hi, If you have upgraded to higher version of Office, Works, Word, Xcel, etc....but not upgraded all machines, the file opened on the non-updated machine might look like weird characters (garbage). That's only one idea...of course there are other reasons, such as not saving the file in the correct program (this is common between computers that have Works when a file created in Office is viewed) Hope this helps!
There are free file converters which will allow computers not having Word at all to open .doc or .wks files....or that will allow cross-program work.
