From what I can tell, you create a File System GPO that creates a folder in %windir%/perfc and sets it to block all access. That would essentially prevent the virus's typical installation from functioning, due to a lack of permissions.

The report I read talks about a file, not a folder. Yodaa, why not install the patches instead?

Adam gave you instructions for folder creation - use them. Also create a file there using the  group policy preference item section neighbored to folders.

But foremost: Install all windows updates.

Systems are updated.


But I think it's good to have the kill switch.

I don't get it should setup the file as the dat or bat?
