there has been so much worm activity this past week or so makes me want to kneejerk 'you have the sasser worm'
if that makes you gasp a little, get the fixsasser tool from
very small download. put on floppy and take to your computer. disable system restore so tool can search there also. (Control Panel/System/System Restore)
then double-click the tool on the floppy. if you have it, it will remove it.
then go get patched with all critical updates from microsoft. from Internet Explorer, pick Tools/Windows update.
then get latest virus definitions and do full system scan. do this step before if no sasser found.
