My Server running Win 2000 gives me the following message:

Message delivery to the remote domain "geocities.com" failed for the following reason. The connection was dropped by the remote host.

I am running Symantec Corporate Edition 9.0 from a another server that distributes definition files to all clients including my server. I know it has been hit by ALEXA and this I know after running Adaware which has quarantined the threat. But the server keeps poping up the same message. What can I do to clean up the system before the problem gets out of hand.

Help

I assume your system is up to date on all the patches (www.windowsupdate.com)
You must install, update and Run
Adaware (you already have it)
Spybot search and destroy (make sure to run the inmunization options afeter updating)
and Finally
HIjaack this! which will give you a report that the experst in this forum can help you analize
to detect any library, process or file that is running in your server with the infection still.
