Conficker Removal Instructions
« on: March 26, 2009, 01:38:20 pm »
Due to recent happenings and threats of the new Conficker worm on the Internet and its zero-day fast approaching on April 1st, I've located and posted the following instructions for GCLF users who believe they have been infected to remove themselves from this harmful zombie computer network.

For an explanation of Conficker and its' history, go to Gizmodo's site to get the deep down skinny of Conficker's varients.

If you feel you have been infected, use the Symantec W32.Downadup Removal Tool. This utility will attempt to remove any found traces of the virus on your computer.

To sum up what the instructions state:
1: Turn off System Restore on Windows ME or XP.
2: Download http://www.symantec.com/content/en/us/global/removal_tool/threat_writeups/FixDwndp.exe.
3: Disconnect from the Internet, to ensure it doesn't try to re-install itself. This means disconnecting your Ethernet, Wifi, or your modem.
4: Reboot.
5: Re-run the tool to ensure Conficker has been removed.
6: Re-enable System Restore.
7: Re-connect to the Internet.
8: If not already installed, install anti-viral and anti-spyware software, such as AVG, Avast!, and Spybot Search&Destroy.

Wouldn't that be nice if both my computers wound up destroyed by this virus ON MY BIRTHDAY?
"Mr. Weed? I can't come to work today. I was in a terrible plane crash. My entire family was killed and I am a vegetable. I'll see you tomorrow!"

"Mr. Toad, how many licks of you does it take to get to the center of a Rhode Island state prison?"
(BAM!)
"JUST ONE."

No, No! Beer bring pain!

I think, therefore I am. I think.

They won't be destroyed.  They'll become slaves to the ever-growing, possibly sentient Conficker Botnet.

I don't think I'm infected with conficker. I now have total 100% control over my computer even though there are some things that no longer work correctly such as saving windows movie maker videos to WMV format.
