I seem to have the Slammer-SQL worm in my Sygate Personal Firewall rawlog.log. It looks like I'm gonna have to close/disable the firewall to remove the worm (I'll be disconnected from the internet when I do this). The rawlog.log can't be healed and will have to be deleted, is this file important?

My computer isn't infected, just the file. I don't know what the purpose of the rawlog.log is so when I disable the firewall, will that write anything to the log causing my computer to become infected?

I've never had this particular type of situation before so I figure it's best to be safe/paranoid than sorry.

It was a false alarm. Apparently the worm tried to get into my computer but the firewall stopped it and logged the information. The antivirus software then thought that the log file was infected when it wasn't. I opened the firewall and cleared the traffic, security, and packet logs and that took care of it - no more worm.
