I read here (I think), but know I read elsewhere that it should be downloaded and run, restart PC, and run again. I did this twice before 2/3.
After having AVG situation last night, I was a bit nervous, even though I had not opened any attachments in my emails. I did run the utility again last night and it showed me clean as a whistle.
I'm keeping that utility handy because I do believe that worm is to become active the 3rd of each month indefinitely.
I may be wrong on that.
i was asked a question... to be on the safe side- even with antivirus up to date and no symptoms , could one download and run teh symantec W32.Blackmal.E@mm removal tool? even though they are 80% sure theyre comp is fine. would it hurt to run it as a precaution?
