Hi huff0623

Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

Does McAfee point to an email message containing the worm?

If so, have you tried deleting the message?

Run an online antivirus check from at least one and preferably 2 of the following sites
http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/
http://security.symantec.com/default.asp?
http://www.ravantivirus.com/scan/
Allow them to clean/delete any spyware/malware or viruses/trojans they may find.

If you do not already have these programs,
Download:
Ad-Aware SE 1.05
Spybot-S&D (ver. 1.3)

Install Ad-Aware SE and Spybot-S&D and check each of them in turn for updates.

For Ad-Aware SE click on Full System Scan and deselect Search for negligible risk entries.
Let Ad-Aware SE remove what it finds.
Run Spybot-S&D and have it fix what it finds marked in Red.

After running your online virus scans and running Ad-Aware SE and Spybot S&D,
close all programs and reboot to complete the removal process.

If you are still receiving this message and are unable to send emails, try turning off email scanning in your Anti-virus program and check your firewall to make sure it is allowing your messaging program access to the internet.

Let us know what happens.
