sample submission failed

I just checked the logs, and the same sample, both today and yesterday, failed to submit for some reason

it says the file is Suspicious.S.MrC

the status is pending on both

I didn't submit it - NIS did automatically - there's no submit to symantec button for me to re-try

You might want to do a Full System Scan, dis-connected from the Internet, as Detection Suspicious.S.MrC was Added to Virus Definitions on June 22, 2009, if you're worried.

now well i've done full system scans and it still seems to come up, tho not on the same thing twice, it comes up on random applications/files. i guess the best thing to do is not worry? i believe also that its been submitted by norton community watch, on all of these occasions. the only thing that really confuses me is, is it actually in my computer or is it doing some sort of checking for this? i have been keeping up to date on the virus definitions and other updates as usual, my computer seems to run normally so.

Please Click on "Technical Details" and Click on "Submit Virus Samples" and Submit all Files Detected as Suspicious.S.MrC.  I would then suggest Clicking on the "Removal" Instructions.  You can also do a Screen Shot of the Files Detected and Post it here for others to have a look at.
