agree,

after unning AV check for the existance of the reg keys

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\
WSAConfiguration = wmon32.exe
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices\
WSAConfiguration = wmon32.exe

if they still exist delete them, some variants of this worm also add junk to your hosts file
look in c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc

open hosts in notepad and dete everything that appears below the

127.0.0.1    localhost

entry

Hi jvuz and Petelong,
I have scanned with Stinger and found w32/nachitptpd virus on one PC and w32/sdbot.worm.gen.g.worms on another PC, both showed svchost.exe as infected. I will see if the problem comes up again.
Thanks.
