What you should know about the blaster worm and its variants

Click here for the latest update from Microsoft.

If you need Microsoft Download Center and find it is unavailable, click into *How to remove MSBlast* which gives an alternative download link, and explains how, after infection, you can use your computer when it keeps shutting down (see also, my posts below dated August 12 and 13).

Yesterday, I purchased and installed ZoneAlarm Pro with Pest Control. Today, I ran updates online at Symantec and Microsoft Windows Update.

One and a half hours ago, Symantec detected, identified and quarantined a second blaster worm virus entering my computer. The file quarantined was called A0006501.exe

Symantec is working well and doing a great job, thanks! (see my posts below, dated 12 and 13 August).
