The Stuxnet worm virous got past AVG security and has created thousands of shortcuts across multiple applications; including Windows\System32 apps. When I click on any shortcut it opens my Eudora e-mail app. The virous explots a vunlnerability the way Windows processes .Link files, used to provide shortcuts to other files. Tried multiple anti virous programs---quarantine over 2,600 shortcut files---houndreds remain on C drive.

Virous discovered about a month ago--spreading across the country---Microsoft does not have a fix. NEED HELP
