Infected with W32.Sasser.B.Worm..PLSSSSS HELP
Posted on 2004-10-27
My computer is infected with the Sasser.B Worm.
When infected the computer slows down...Moving from application to application is slow..
Boot and Logins are painfully slow.
*** I ran the Symantec Fix tool a couple of times in the last week [yes i turned off the System Restore]. But after a complete run it came out saying no infected files found.
***I ran the Norton AV also and it completed with "NO VIRUS FOUND" results
After these scans my computer doesnt hang.
Then again in a couple of days...it starts infecting and spreads from a few files to 1000s in minutes.
It seems like The Sasser Hides when the Tool runs"...
I guess the Virus is bound in some "temp" folders.
I regularly empty the Temp Internet Folders whenever I Log off.
Can i delete the contents of all the possible temp folders on my mahcine. as in C:\Windows\Temp etc.
