Worm Elimination

  Blessed 01:24 21 Sep 2006

I use Earthlink dial up and received the following email. How do I eliminate a worm?

Mail server report.

Our firewall determined the e-mails containing worm copies are being sent from your computer.

Nowadays it happens from many computers, because this is a new virus type (Network Worms).

Using the new bug in the Windows, these viruses infect the computer unnoticeably. After the penetrating into the computer the virus harvests all the e-mail addresses and sends the copies of itself to these e-mail addresses

Please install updates for worm elimination and your computer restoring.

Best regards,
Customers support service

Ewido will do the job and it is free. It might be worth installing Windows Defender to have real-time protection.
