This new worm, virus, whatever

Recommended Posts

My work computer seems to be infected. Drat! I know I can get a fix or patch for it through MicroTrend's Housecall antivirus program which is free. Unfortunately, my computer won't stay on long enough for me to even get to the website, much less download anything. Almost before the homepage loads up, the computer is shutting down. I'm wondering if I can download the "fix" on my other computer (the one running Win98SE), save it to disk and then install it on my work computer (which runs WinXP). Does anyone know, or should I just try it. Maybe the patch won't download unless it detects the worm on the system, in which case, I think I'm out of luck. Most likely I'll end up taking the machine in and having a reinstall.... ugh.-Lindy

I think I have it licked... anyway, so far, so good. I hope they find whoever is responsible. But even if they do, I'm sure nothing much will be done. I just do not understand what drives some people to do this kind of stuff. :-erks -Lindy :-wave

Reputation. As sick as it sounds, they actually want to make the news, and cause as much havoc as possible, that's their motivation. DP
