    I ran my Panda's anti-virus scan the other day, and to my suprise
    I was infected with W32 Netsky D..gggggrrrrrrr!. I went online
    to Panda to d/l their removal software, but I ran into a snag.

    Panda's software would not d/l to my computer. So I tried
    Mc Affee, and it would not d/l the removal software either.

    I'm currently running XP Home with SP2.

    This is what my scan uncovered W32/NETSKY. D Worm
    Location C: documents & settings\Fran Rick\
    local
    Settings\temp. internet
    files\content. 1E5\CDUJCX2J
    show letter [ 19 ] . htm
    results renamed

    I would appreciate any ideas that you good people could come up
    with, In helping me get this worm out of my machine.

    Thanx Rick

    Think he was saying boot into safe mode and run anti-virus scan again...but I don't know for sure?

    If you have the file location, just go to it and delete it. This usually doesn't work, but I have done it before on a friends pc.
