Been over to my mum-in-law's this weekend for my usual tweak, updating and scanning session and found 'Storm.Worm' located at pp.exe. Has anyone any knowledge of this thing as it sounds quite bad.

Once I got home I received a message from her to say that while logging off she received a message to the effect 'Are you sure? there are other users logged on. I've since been reading that Storm.Worm can make your system a Zombie and I'm now rather worried.

Is this a case for HJT? She's currently running AVG, Kerio and Counterspy. It was the Counterspy that picked it up on a scan. Checked AVG logs and there was an infected file noticed about mid-February but I'm not sure that she scanned it before downloaded.

Any help gratefully accepted.

I seems that this worm can carry a number of different payloads.

A scan with SuperAntispyware (free version) click here would be a good idea.

Posting a Hijack This log on the Malware Removal forums click here would also be a sensible step to get a more thorough analysis of what malware is actually running on the pc.
