I'm a student at the University of Texas, and I don't know a whole lot about computers. I occasionally get viruses on my computer, mostly by clicking on stupid links in profiles on my AIM buddy list.

I recently got a particularly nasty worm which has evaded my Symantec Anti-Virus program, and it actually got me kicked off the school's internet service. I'll describe it in more detail in the Security section of the forum.

Welcome to BC. This is the place to get help to get rid of whatever worm your computer has, and hopefully get reinstated.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
