warning to ye all, there is a worm (Sasser) that is going around, and, it wont likely be picked up by a virus scanner or firewall.

hell, i got it. (luckly i know what to do)

well, here is the whole fix up thing. ( http://www.microsoft.com/security/incident/sasser_printxp.asp )

also, the worm will try and shutdown your computer by throwing up this window that says it will shut down your computer in 60 seconds. if it tries to do that, go to Start-> Run -> type "cmd" -> when the prompt comes up type "shutdown -a" once you type that, it will stop the shutdown.

Glad I haven't been using the internet at home for a couple of weeks now :D. I reckon I'll keep doing that for a while...

I hate people who make vira. A hospital here in Denmark had to postpone some scannings because some of the systems had been infected. Those geeks who think it cool to make disruptive programs are playing with lives.
