Re AVG and Netsky C. Now how do I prevent it

My thanks to Stuartli and ianeon for your help on this matter. I have got rid of the Worm with your help, but surely AVG should have prevented it coming in if not what do I need to do to prevent it happening. I have XP Home and AVG free.I also use Mailwasher but perhaps not well enough.Prof

These worms spread fast, the only real hope you have of keeping on top of them is to update any Anti Virus at least once a day.

Also delete any suspicious looking emails without opening them.

Don't open unknown mail.

Yes this is what I thought, I just hoped that maybe I was doing something wrong and that there was a magic programme which would bannish the little bug @^Zx s. Thaks Prof.
