Can anyone please tell me which of the MS updates, i.e. K number which should be installed to protect against this worm. My sister's system appears to be in the process of going belly up and although she has automatic MS updates and Norton Internet Security we are trying to establish if she has the important update.

Looking forward to your response.

If it is not in Add/Remove programs list then have a search within Windows - you should find it there>

Thanks skidzy and provider 2. Am waiting for her to come back to me. Last report, she indicated that it might be a problem with her mouse.

Many thanks for your help. Will post any information I have if it is this worm.

Regards - Barmoor
