I have the WIN.KORGO.V.WORM and have used AdAware but cannot delete it. My realtime scan tells me I have it, but when I run the full scan it does not detect it. AdAware did detect and I deleted 345 bugs when I ran the first scan. Man, I had no idea how much junk had got inot my machine. Any ideas about how to get rid of this critter?

Hi

This worm spreads via the Internet by exploiting the LSASS vulnerability. Your Windows is not up to date and the worm keeps comming back.

! This is very important !: Update your Windows. Doing this will make your computer more secure. Please visit Windows Update (follow this link: http://www.windowsupdate.com) to update Windows. Follow the instructions on the screen. You may have to visit more then once Windows Update to install all updates.
Not updating Windows will leave your computer vulnerable to malware and attacks.
Everyday is virus day. Do you know where your recovery CDs are ?
Did you create them yet ?

Good Afternoon.
I thought you might be interested.I have just been looking at the Symantec(Norton) site you can from there download a tool for the removal of Korga v.
I have used these tools before,they are very effective.You can run directly or save to a floppy.
Good luck
Philip

I have just noticed Korgo is also listed on Stinger if Norton dosn't work.Both these tools are free.
Regards
