One of the preventions for this type of virus is to be aware of your modem/router lights. They show TX (transmit) activity and when you are not sending anything it will normally flicker every few seconds for normal TCP/IP activity. if it is showing some major activity (like steady on) and you weren't sending anything, you have a problem. ususally in the form of e-mail floods. Most e-mail floods are part of a co-ordinated attack from many infected machines. These attacks are most commonly a "Denial of Service " attack, trying to overwhelm the recipient of all of the floods to close down the targets' communications ability.

My home computers got hit real bad and Time Warner (my internet provider) shut down my internet connection until we fixed the problem. We got everything back up and running using the software shown on the following page.

EVERYONE should be VERY careful right now as there is a VERY nasty Trojan hitting the entire internet. They told me that they have never seen it this bad. Never is the exact word they used.

I followed all of the steps and install many of the different programs to finally clean our 3 computers at my house.

Was an enormous pain, but had to be done.


OUCH !!!! I'm surprised AVG didn't see the virus coming in. You might want to install "Startupcop" which monitors activity on the registry and notifies you when something is entering/deleting/modifying auto start programs. I've caught 2 attemts from e-mail attatchments and freebee software.
