Found the infernal worm on my machine. Disposed of it and installed the patch...thanks VOG for your earlier posts re RPC and shutdowns. They were of great assistance.
What I would like to know is where I could have contracted the virus from: given that I never open unsolicited e-mails, let alone attachments.
Ideas from this illustrious think tank would be most welcome. Thanks.
