Yes, it's a nasty one.

Everyone should make a visit to the microsoft update website and download the latest security patches for Windows 2000 and XP

There was a patch from microsoft for this since april. I recommend Everyone runs windows update. Also If you have broadband, please turn on your firewall. This will also prevent you from being infected.

Windows update can be found by going to http://www.microsoft.com and clicking Windows update.

ya unfortunatly anti-virus companies can't keep up with the release of new viruses. They may release an update that will catch it days or weeks later.

well download the patch before you get caught out it shuts down your machine as you are trying to fix it. It took me bloody hours to download the right stuff.

Its now screwing up my PC. I guess I'll be embarking on an exciting 5 hour trip of continuously visiting the Microsoft website and running anti-virus programs...oh, wait a mintute. I forgot that crappy Norton didnt manage to catch the virus, but they still have the nerve to ask me to pay for their updates, when their f*cking original software doesnt even work!

Its gonna be a long day. I was s'posed to be going out today too!

This gets rid of the bugger http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
You need to download this
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sec.../ms04-011.mspx
which is the patch that stops you getting it over and over again.

I got that virus ages ago, and then I installed norton Internet Security 2004. The virus has ceased. Was it the one where there is a one minute countdown?

Dunno, but make sure you don't have these ports open: 5554, 9996, 445. I've also been getting loads of emails with a variant of the Netsky worm :/.
