Hopefully someone can help.

Norton has detected 5 files infected with w32.nimda.enc 4 x *.eml files and 1 x *.nws file.
but ever since then those files and the virus have been undetectable by norton plus several other virus programs, anti-trojans, nimda fix tools. I am experiencing intermittent crashes, loss of broadband connection, and strangely 3 crabs moving across the screen - this has happened twice, surprisingly i can't find any info on the net because it must be specific to something.

wow. That sounds harsh. I'm no help, but I've not heard of anything like this at all.

3 crabs? lol.

I have discovered the crabs only appear with one website www.autosport.com which was my default page, but even when changing the default page its only this site that triggers the crabs.
Could someone take a look at the code on that site and tell me if anything looks suspect
