There’s another worm on the loose. More information can be found here: http://www.theinquirer.net.
If you don’t have an antivirus program you can get a free one from here: AVG Antivirus
Got spyware/adware on your computer? Find out and get rid of it for free: Ad-Aware
Have a firewall? No? Get a free one here: ZoneAlarm
Got the messenger spam blues? Get rid of them. More info here: Messenger Spam (I attached a graphic on ‘how to’ also, but follow at own risk!) Also note that Microsoft’s next service pack SP2 for Windows XP will disable this feature. The service pack is due out this spring sometime.
Kill plug and play! It’s evil. Your computer doesn’t need to speak to your fridge. More information here: UnPlug n’ Pray (It’s been a while since I looked at Steve Gibson’s site but I noticed he has a messenger removal tool also. Definately worth using)
Shut down DCOM! (more info here at Gibson’s site)
Alternately, you could give up Windows and install SuSe.
