    Hi Guys

    Yet another worm for us all by those thoughtful people who keep writing them. This one is using an Internet Explorer Vulnerability to infect Computers directly from email and also using Kazaa and IRC to spread itself around. First of all I would recommend you get a patch for Internet Explorer from..

    Good Luck :)

    Thanks for the info. _X_X_X_X_X_[small]When you are on your deathbed, you will wonder, "Did I waste my life? Was it worth spending all that time on that?" Do not despair, no one has wasted their life. After all, you can only waste something if you throw it away. And you can't throw life away. [/small]

    This is not the place to be asking that kind of question.

    THEDICE, im sorry to hear of your problems, you may want to rid yourself of outlook express permenatly, it has just too many bugs, such as its security flaws that can allow viruses. If you're using xp pro without the service pack I have an uninstaller that will remove it(better than the one you may be able to find within windows) private message me if you're interested

    Virus removal? Symantec, Network Associates and the lot of them have those tools for free. Just goto their site and either the tool will be advertised (if its a recent virus) or just do a quick search on the virus and download the removal tool for free
