My computer is now almost unusable due, I think, to this worm. I have several security progs. installed Spybot s&d, stinger, norton and solo antivirus but none seem to deal with it. Norton detected it but the message was that it could not deal with it.Can I do anything about this or would it be easier to reinstall windows?

thanks for the help, I now find that norton has become corrupted and tells me to reinstall, however I do not have a disc. Is there another way to be rid of the worm?

click here if you go down theres a removal tool you can download and try but there appears to be several types of spybot worms and I think this tool only removes one of them, worth a try though if it doesn't find it you'll know its one of the other types.
