Interesting name for a worm you're royally fscked.
No problems in the local linux group.
I suggest downloading Hiren's boot cd and repartitioning the HD to have
a small 4GB C: and make a dd of that on DVD after your clean install.
Start with AVG from grissoft.com then zone alarm and buy a copy of
system mechanic and Norton System Works 2006.
Then install all your middle ware.
