    Here's something interesting:

    My wife took a picture of me last night (basically to try to blind me with the LED flash), and I connected the Droid to the PC via USB.

    Every time I try to edit the picture, Norton throws a "Bloodhound Exploit 13" virus detection and I cannot save the picture. Now I'm sure this is a Vista related issue (and not the Droid), but just wanted to share this since Droid was the source of the image.

    It looks like a Norton "false positive" and I'm trying to figure out how to get around it. Seems pretty common though.

    Edited to add: I got around it by uploading the file to www.picnik.com rather than deal with Norton. This was the only picture that was affected.

    Yay Norton :p I'd suggest checking out Microsoft Security Essnetials.. it's free and lighter weight... and less false positives since it's from MS :D
