Help not needed. This is for information only.

Whilst re-intlalling Windows I was infected with the W32.Welchia.Worm.

Although I was offline during install, I needed to connect to run virus updates, and this short time whilst not compleatly protected was enough to do the damage.

Welchia infects these files:

Maybe other files too! ?

C:\WINDOWS\system32\wins\DLLHOST.EXE".

C:\WINDOWS\System32\wins\svchost.exe"

Having just upgraded HDD Clean install a simple enough job (you would think.)

I am very careful but no matter how careful you are you may get caught out.

I just hope that this is helpful to other people and save them the grief I have been through today.

I didn't think it was possible to get infected without either reciving mail of going to a site containing viruses

"How wrong I was"

I will leave this thread open for people to read.

PS. Sorry about spelling, not installed word pro yet!
