To VoG - Sasser still there!

Hi Vog
Following your advice about the Sasser worm, I downloaded the Macafee “Stinger” removal tool. I followed all instructions (including disabling System Restore). Stinger reported finding the Sasser worm and removing it. At this point I posted my “thanks” message to you and checked the “problem solved” box.
However….. ten minutes later while I was still on the internet, I got the dreaded error report again, and the computer duly shut down.
I ran the Stinger again and it found nothing.
Having had a look at the manual removal instructions, I have checked in the c:\windows folder and cannot see the file AVSERVE.EXE. I have also looked in the registry and cannot see the “avserve” value in HKEY_LOCALMACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run.
If you have any other suggestions to solve this problem I would be enormously grateful!

Very strange. Do you still get the LSA Shell message before the NT Authority shutdown message?

If you didn't install the patch you may have caught the new variant sasser.d click here
