I looked up Conficker Virus on Google. There was a program by Symantec that was supposed to remove it called Symantec W32.Downadup Removal Tool. I ran it. Upon completion I got the message "Restart the computer - After restarting the computer please install the patch for MS08-067 vulnerability if it has not already been installed.". I looked up MS08-067 and Windows 7 Home Premium is not one of the options listed so I did nothing. Meanwhile I still get the Conflicker Virus message. I already flushed the DNS Cache and ran SPYBOT S&D per an earlier thread. Any more ideas?

Hi,

If I use Ultrasurf and assign a proxy, I don't get this error. Does anyone know why?

@ richierein
Is something also telling you that you have Conflicker?

I guess so. But it looks like a pretty involved process to remove it. How long should it take?
