I am trying to remove the sasser virus from a laptop that is running Windows XP with Service Pack 3. I have run the Symantec Removal tool from (http://www.symantec.com/security_response/writeup.jsp?docid=2004-050114-1706-99) But this has not found it.

Does anybody know how to get rid of it? I am sure it is the Sasser virus because it comes up with the System will shut down in 60 seconds screen and counts down.

Any help would be great, Thank you

This is now solved. Turns out it was Mcafee making a mess of things with their update.
