    I think you'll find what you need here

    http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/refa.html#removal

    Removal
    This measures the skill level needed to remove the threat from a given computer. Removal sometimes involves deleting files and modifying registry entries. The three levels are difficult (requires an experienced technician), moderate (requires some expertise), and easy (requires little or no expertise).

    Good luck!

    What did you scan your system with? Did you go to housecall & scan, or was it your onboard scanner?

    Oops, I think Savvy posted the wrong link. <a href="http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.blebla.b.worm.html">Here ya go!</a>
    The removal instructions are about 1/2 way down the page to the end.

    All the link gave was a definition of the term Removal (not specific to this worm). I think he was looking for instructions on how to remove the Blebla worm.

    Ok - now I'm the slow one!
    Greg - did you have a question on the removal instructions?

    Why not try the cleaner we advised you to use?

    Greg you'll either have to use the cleaner or take it to someone to do it for you.

    In the meantime your e-mail is being sent to everyone on your addressbook by the virus itself ... along with more virus to them which if they get it too will be sent back to you again if you are in their addressbook.

    We have dealt with many past blebla infections here. And I believe we have had virtually a 100% success rate with people following the instructions on this site. Use the Readme.txt to learn how to remove the files from your system. Then run the downloaded blebla.inf by right clicking it and selecting "install"

    This is similar to the one Tony posted, but repairs damage to a few more file types.
