Make sure your virus definitions are up to date(mine were, did not stop it but at least they caught it) :rolleyes1

then scan your computers. I hope no one else has caught this bugger.

Good news is Symantec's remover tool totally remove this from my computer.

I hate virus' and virus writters!!!!


my rant for today is now over

Sorry to hear you were infected Mal. It ticks me off to know that somewhere someone is trying to make a name for themselves by creating a virus. Sick, sick, people. Glad to hear you got rid of it.

The guy who fixes my computer says that he thinks the people who write the anti virus software are the ones who releases the viruses. Thus they always have a job. I kinda think that is true also.

It is amazing how this virus was released on Jan 27 and just a couple of days later Norton's has a fix for it!



Makes you wonder huh!?!?!
