Virus problem

  Bevlee 20:06 03 Oct 2004

A long time ago this virus or bug was going around
A pop up came on saying-you have 60 seconds then you will be disconnected.
And so you are
Does anyone recall what it was and the fix?
Thanks a bunch

Sasser or Blaster.

First, Start, Run and type

shutdown -a

and click OK. This will give you more time.

Disable System Restore click here

Next, get the MS Patch. Without it you'll be reinfected every time you connect: click here

Then run Stinger click here

When all is OK again, re-enable System Restore.

a programme called "Stinger" and download this to your desktop.
Maybe you will have to use another machine if you have this type of virus.

From the desktop open the Stinger and run this tool. Hopefully it will zap your virus for good.

Also after go into your Internet connections in control Panel if XP and make sure you have firewall protection switched on by right click your internet icon select properties then advanced and its in there to switch on Firewall for XP

If you have a different operating system please call back.
