diving through my windows directory, I discover that I have contracted the Lorraine worm - its pretty harmless, so I've read, but it is still the opposite of cool, and I'd like to have it removed...BUT I lack an antivirus program of any nature, because I am currently too broke to buy one.

any free ways to remove this POS? Info on the bloody thing

:mad: :eek:

AVG 6.0 is free and very good.

ooo, many thanks for that suggestion, it is free and is nice... it didn't remove that worm, but I nuked the html application (lorraine.hta) - the registry key that it had the possibility of creating wasn't there (praise!), and I couldn't find any of the other crap, so hopefully I'm safe.

Thanks again, j79zlr :)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
