    The worm came up and bit me. I was happily working on my laptop and all of a sudden, Norton Virus alert pops up telling me this critter's into my:
    C:\Windows\System32\wins\dllhost.exe file. Norton can't access and can't repair the file. I click on the link and get a set of directions and a removal tool. I ran the tool which said it successfully removed the worm. Somewhere in the middle of the process, I was notified that my virus definitions had been updated and I was now protected. Hopefully that's true.

    No virus alerts on this computer in months and now two in just a few days. Grrr. :snipersm:
