Hi guys its me again, pls download the stinger prog from the ntu server, even though u think tat u are not affected. Its just to play safe. u can also open up ur task manager to see if theres a iexploree.exe file running. If yes, u are infected with the worm.

Try this:

Goto Start > Run > Type this > sysedit

Sysedit will open up a few files, look for the file win.ini

See if this sentence is present in the 1st few lines >
" Load c:\ " or " Run c:\ "

If the above is present, delete the sentence off.

If the above not present, than goto Start > Run > Type this > regedit

Regedit will open.
Goto HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
Goto SOFTWARE
Goto Microsoft
Goto Windows
Goto Current version
Goto Run
Look at the right side, see if the value " C:\ " is present. If it is then highlight it, right click and select delete.

Hope the above will solve your problem.

If u guys recieve a mail titled call My details PLS DO NOT open cos its a deadly worm. Its called W32.welchia.worm or W32.Repad.Worm. W32.Repad.Worm is a worm that attempts to spread through the KaZaA file-sharing network. The existence of the file st01b.reb or SysTray32.dat is an indication of a possible infection. The first time the worm is executed it will shut down the computer.

I kena it last nite and it turns out to be really serious..

So everyone pls take took of tis..

Yup, its very important to have those anti virus programs installed, and apart from this u will need a firewall to prevent penetration from hackers. search under firewall at www.download.com

Alert! Latest virus!

Postby maoxi » Sun, 28 Sep 2003 11:25 pm

Latest virus: W32.Swen.A@mm

If you have anti-virus software installed, go for LiveUpdate.
If you don't, better go for online scan, or best get one installed.

I have 2 sites recommended:
1. For removal tool >>http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/tools.list.html
2. For online scan >>http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
