Hi,

There is not any thumb rule for it. You can judge in some cases and if seen any real time activities on the System then can come to conclusion that it's infected. IT experience/System experience can help you to make the correct judgment.

Symantec does provide Symhelp tool to find out suspicious files present on the System.

Can refer this article: https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/articles/using-symhelp-how-do-we-collect-loadpoint-logs-and-submit-same-symantec-technical-support-t
