    Is there a virus out there that is affecting excel spreadsheets

    Was adding my spreadsheets and the numbers would not add up. So I shut my
    computer down and ran a norton anti virus program. It seemed to correct the
    problem for now but can someone advise me if there is a virus out there that
    is affecting the spreadsheet programs
    Thanks

    You ran Norton, but did it find anything?

    Just a simple shut-down and re-boot will fix many common computer
    problems that are nothing to do with a virus, just related to things
    getting corrupted over a days use, or memory leak, or ..... etc etc
    etc..

    In addition to the goodness that follows a clean reboot (like a
    cleansing spring rain, without the electrical shorts), was calculation
    turned to manual before the shutdown? That'll prevent things from adding up.

    Seems more likely that you had a workbook open in which Calculation was set
    to manual.
    If it happens again try pressing F9.
