Norton has just done an update and a new window came up saying Threat Detected. Virus found Win32/Heur

I have no idea what this means and if i click on more information it says "we have no more information" Lol

Any ideas what it means please?

Win32/Heur, also mentioned as Virus Win32 Heur is a dangerous self-mutating polymorphic trojan virus, typically installed on windows system without victims knowledge. The Win32/Heur virus infects PC's via dubious filesharing applications, corrupt media files, spam emails and porn related web sites. Onec infected, Win32/Heur virus will modify Windows win32 system files, and install additional trojans, worms and viruses onto the infected computer. The Win32/Heur trojan is usually detected with the "Virus found Win32/Heur" alert and may activate fake Dr. Watson security warnings and redirect Internet Explorer and FireFox browsers to sites like ripetv.com or crackle.com
