Hi Guys. What are worms and are they harmful, what do they do. ZA has told me that I have a worm called "svhost.exe ". I have downloaded a set of removal instructions from Kephyr.com and have followed them to the letter, but to no avail, the little blighter does not want to go. Any ideas. OS is XP home. Thanks.

By ZA do you mean Zonealarm. If so is it the ant-virus version or just firewall version

Turn off System restore before you use a removal tool.
