How to get rid of W32.Blaster.Worm


A very important aspect of an antivirus application is what you will feel comfortable with and use.  It does no good if you do not like or are intimidated causing you to avoid using it like you should.  The most important point is to use an anti virus application properly.  You must update it at least weekly.  You must run a full scan of your computer at least weekly.

Once you suspect your computer has a virus, worm etc, you MUST immediately physically disconnect the computer from the network. If not, the infection can and eventually will infect other computers.
You should also do the same to all other computers whether they have symptoms or not.
