with the infamous W32.Blaster.Worm virus.

click here for detailed instructions on how to remove the virus, and then download the Microsoft patch to prevent reinfection.

As a general warning to others: Do not open mail with attachments and a header that reads "That movie" or "wicked screensaver" or "Application refused" plus other tempting titles. At the moment there's a big 'second wave' of infections caused by this virus.

You dont even need DCOM running so shut it down:

Control panel

Administrative tools

Component services

Expand component services until you get to my computer

Right click on it, select properties
Default properties, uncheck ?enable distributed COM on this computer?
Default protocols, remove what?s there
