Win Worm 32 is a nasty little virus

Damn thing locked down my computer to all programs. Even took over admistrator rights. I could not do a restore or recovery. I had to reformat the drive and load every thing up again. Biggest pain is losing all my email contacts. Now I have my antivirus back up and going.

Did you not have a current AV program at the time?

Now that you have a fresh install, you would be wise to image the drive at it's current state provided you have an external HDD.

I found this program and it works well and is free.

Thanks for the heads up. I actually bought an external hard drive a couple of monts ago. Backed up most of my stuff. My antivirus out of date by about 1 year. I just kept putting it off. Won't be doing that again.

Would you wear an opened 1 year old condom? ( don't answer that too truthfully)

Why make your PC do it?

Poor PC.

im actually serious though. anytime someone brings me a computer i already know what's wrong with it before they say anything. "its gotten so slow, i think i have a virus". every computer i seem to touch is just running rampant with spyware and its literally crawling to do anything. i ask them if they have any data they need, if not i just format the SOB. i seriously have no idea where everyone goes to get all crap on their computer other than porn or myspace.

How do you like it? Does it have a firewall and parental controls? Right now I'm using Trend Micro I.S.2008 and I'm considering switching in October when it expires. I have a relatively large HDD and T.M. doesn't have the option to only scan new stuff and has been rather flakey as of late.

OR something a little less expensive if you have a DVD burner and most any recent version of NERO is to use Nero BackITup and burn a restore disc set onto DVD to fully restore the computer.
