Ok what I have here is a worm, that is spread via AOL Instant Messenger, it is called find.exe and is located in C:/WINDOWS folder. I looked up info about this worm on the symantec website, and everything seems to check out.. except this worm in not in the same folder as on symantec, and i tried the removal instructions on my computer and nothing was detected (disabled windows system restore, restarted in safe mode, ran ad-aware and Norton Anti-Virus, still nothing found.. Another thing about this worm is that it rendered my other computer internetless, my computer is basically telling me that i have limited connection to only my router, I tried to "repair" the LAN, but It could not renew the IP, i then tried to do it manually, through command prompt, same problem. Then i tried typing in the router IP in my browser.. nothing came up!.. so i tried to reset my router.. again i tried the IP, and still nothing! Can anyone help me out? or do i have to reformat?
