I have a toshiba lap top that has become infected with a worm. It said that I have 66 virus' and have to pay $95 dollars to get rid of them and asked for credit card #. Didn't give it of course. It threw Macafee in the recycle bin and unable to get it back. Then it screamed!! It is called w32\blaster.worm. This is my daughters computer and this is the info she gave me.

Good evening. :)

Please go here, follow the instructions as best you can skipping those that you cannot run for any reason, and then start a new thread and post accordingly.
Please include a brief description of your problem in the new thread, just to keep everything in one place, and somebody will be along as soon as they can to help.

To keep things tidy i'll lock this thread.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.
