Firstly, I'm most definitely not posting this to push the products of the company I work for OK!!!

It just so happens I'm copyediting our virus control packaging artwork and part of it says

"Most virus control packages can only recognize viruses when the virus executes. But now, thanks to Norman's newly developed heuristic scanner technology, NVC is one of the first products on the market that can accurately recognize and remove a dormant virus without prior knowledge of it."

I'm still in the process of finding out if "dormant" is needed or not.

This is the kind of thing I would usually dismiss, but it
appeared in Computerworld, Sept 29, 1997, page one:

"...many new virus strains that could damage user documents
aren't the handiwork of malicious hackers but the result
of a glitch in Microsoft Word, many industry observers say.
And that means more ways for destructive code to get into
Word documents potentially undetected. That's because
most antivirus software can block and clean only known
viruses."
