The first forced run set the registry entry to fool Melissa into thinking that it had already run. The second was a forced run that sent the NAV virus definitions directly to the workstation. Everything worked fine and we had no problems with the virus. All this was done in 15 minutes on a Sunday from home. Thank God for NAL!!
