Thanks for the heads-up LadyCook61 - I think I
will disconnect from the internet on 4/1 - I am leading a
9 mile hike that day anyway.
I have Sunbelt Firewall, AVG anti-virus and Trojan Hunter software
in addition to Windows Defender.

This is important stuff. I think maybe the mods should change the title so more people see it and are careful and make sure their anti-virus software is up to date.

That is the phrase of my day. I haven't shared the hell I went through today but suffice it to say, someone definitely tried to destroy my life today. And I mean that literally, not figuratively.

Here is a link for the Microsoft Malacious Software Removal Tool
which will search for and remove this Conficker worm.

Download details: Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool

Here is a link to a Windows newsletter which keeps you
up to date on things like this.

Run a Conficker removal tool before April 1

I have moved this to Forum Help and Ideas so it would not keep getting covered up by the jokes and games. This information is help for the forum members.
