hey everyone just recently i scanned my computers in my network for viruses and there is a serious one you probably have heard about on the news

MSBLAST worm
and
NACHIE worm

both are the basic same worm.
what they do is slow down and disconnect the computers in your network. you will definatly notice the speed differance.

how you get the virus is by one person on your network getting it somehow from a email or file or something or another and it instantly transfers through out the netowork giving all the computers the worm. now all the computers in the network have been infected.

!!!How to get rid of it!!!
well i used trend micros free online virus scan because it was the most convieniant one for me...i didnt ahve to run updates on it or anything its just all ready for you to use..

Trend Micros free online virus scanner

what i did was i disconnected the 2 out of 3 people on my network leaving the computer i was working with on the net. this increases the speed for that computer. then i went to the site and used the virus scanner and it instantly found it right as i pushed scan. you can let it search for other viruses if youd like. now when thats done i disconeected that computer from the network and put the other computer in and did the same thing over and over.

This network problem has been bugging me for about 2 weeks now and ive been trying to fix it like mad!

just tryin to help out with some solid info....

:cool:

The virus scanner is a temporary fix. If you don't udate your service packs and hotfixes through microsoft, you'll get it again.

I've not only heard about it, but I've also had the pleasure of removing it from a number of my client's computers! :D
