Get the latest Windows and Anti virus updates, Scan your system. Keep Resident sheild on if you're using AVG, Should block all the activities for it.

So yeah I found the problem. Its because I didn't update windows. Updating right now !

EDIT : So yeah I found the problem. Its because I didn't update windows. Updating right now !

EDIT - MY AV ESET removed conficker completely before downloading the update. I still downloaded the update and installed. So I can assure I am safe.

Thanks now I can access all anti-virus websites and microsoft's so I am safe.

Although I can't get rid of this annoying message that appears when I start firefox...

Your Firefox install was probably jacked by that worm; back up your bookmarks first and then try reinstalling it.

Though ESET has always been way worse than Avira/BitDefender/Kaspersky. For me they always sucked, their Internet Security's never protected me decently. I switched to Kaspersky and I was fine, but now I have Kaspersky 7 which support is going to end because it's the only one I have

My above comment was not because I liked ESET ( I am soon going to switch to AVAST/No Kapersky because it slows down when I play FIFA09) but because Steam always flames anyone who doesn't use Kaspersky since he is a fanboy of KASPERSKY. :)

LOL. Unlucky. But, how did he/she get it though, do you know? I only ask because I'm genuinely interested in how you get a virus these days.

Sure I could intentionally go to dodgy porn websites and download FreePr0ns.exe but why would I?

I don't think I've ever gotten a virus. If I have it's one of those ones that's just lame and annoys you by, I don't know, something like making a program ask if you want to shut it down. Stuff that isn't really a concern. But the last time I probably got one of those anyway was ages ago. It seems pretty hard to get a virus for me.

Nothing to see here, move along

I got infected when I sent the tower to the store to get the new GPU installed in Jan March. When it came back AVG was uninstalled and I had a trial version of Norton installed, sooo like a normal person I uninstall that and put in AVG and BAM!! Resident shield detects a conficker/s...

Edit: Yay Image!!

LOL.Norton is stupid. Why did you even use it ?

@Chris - He said he got infected when he tried out a genuine hack for vista ( to make it genuine).

I don't use Norton. But I used to back in 2000/2003 and that was just my thought, as it's so crappy I don't think it detects Eicar.

I never used Norton. I used Mcafee 3-4 years first. I installed norton since I thought it was better, it gave me alerts for no reason.
