Hi seem to have the w.32 blaster & welchia worm virus. I have downloaded the removal tools for these viruses and the latest patch for win XP, but it still come's back after a few days. How can I get rid of it for good???

You'll need to disable system restore to get rid of them.

If you go to date and time and set the year to 2004 maybe the Welchia will delete itself ;-)click here

Did you turn off `system restore` when you used the removal tool ?

that link should have been click here "Checks the computer's system date. If the year is 2004, the worm will disable and remove itself."

to keep the blaster from coming back, use a firewall. when i disable mine, i get the blaster every half hour!!!
