Ouch. Just comments for next time.

Don't let there be a next time?

At home and most of the office (we still have Virus Dan to deal with) the behaviour and use of the PCs still remain the best guard.

We use a variety of antivirus (small office), zone alarm and scan with Housecall, Ewido once a week or so. We also:

1. Turn off email preview in Outlook. (all versions)
2. Never open emails from strangers. (most of the time)
3. Use a browser other than what came with Windows.
4. P2P use is forbidden. Just too unsafe and for work, not a company function. End of that discussion.

While I hold this forum and members in high regard, please try our Virus forum next time as well as the ones at this link ->

Sorry to hear you couldn't kill it off, but I bet you learned something.
