w32.gaobot!inf anyone know how to get rid of this virus I cant seem to find much about it on google.
Did you visit this page, there are several version of this virus... ? There should be the right solution for you as they claim to have the protection against it since april 28/29...
yah check this out, norton is pestering me with a stupid warning screen about this bastard yet when i try to clean it off or get more info all I get is this.
wtf am I gonna do with that?
try this online scanner,not very practical to use but I do trust Kaspersky for a few years now, never failed on me, here it is:
so glad I bought norton so I could use a free online scanner haha
No offence meant, but I quit using Norton when I discovered that Norton didn't see viruses that Kaspersky could see and eradicate...
I would also suggest housecall as an great online AV scanner.
well I would suggest you use one on your system and have a few free online scans as back and to be sure, as I know that no single anti virus program will catch all virii etc
Yeah I wouldn't use ANY online scanner as my sole AV protection. But it's good when you've found something to have another AV go thru and make sure it's all good.
it was that new worm thats been floating around but NAV was saying it was somthing else, anywho i applyed the patch and deleted the infected files and the laptop is all good again. thanks for your help.
Good old Sasser eh? I like how the numbers went from a few hundred, and industry not so worried, till today (monday) and it exploded into hundreds of thousands and was on the news as a *new* virus that you can now get a patch for.
-edit- Why not stress on the news about the patch/2wk old security update on Saturday when they 1st knew about the worm and knew it was gonna get big?
That would be too easy and they figure people wont understand or wont care.
Yeah true .. ppl don't care till its there system not booting or is totally borked. Never mind that there computer could disrupt ppl that did patch. :/
