Hi

I have a machine on my LAN that has become infected with the Blaster Virus.

What is the quickest way to find out where this infection has come from. I bascially want a scanner that can scan an IP range and tell me if the machine has Blaster on it.

Does anyone know of such a tool?

Many thanks

Ste

Hi Microtech

Thanks for this but this will only scan and remove it from 1 machine. I need to be able to scan an IP range for a machine that has infected my machine.

My OS is XP BTW

Many thanks
