    I got it yesterday. Did not know it was a virus. My computer kept shutting down when I got on the internet. Found the RPC file it infected and disabled it. I was able to then stay on line, not all the functions worked on my computer though.
    Downloaded the remove tool and patch earlier today. All is well now.

    According to information I heard the patch from Microsoft was only put out a couple months ago. So if your Windows is older than that then it probably has the flaw.

    I did not see a download for ME on Microsoft webpage? So I am guessing that ME is in the clear as Lauderdale said.

    Here is a link to the Microsoft patch page. Looks like they verify that ME edition is unaffected.

    Thumbs down

    It looks like everyone may be affected by the worm eventually unless you take the extra steps to protect your computer. Check out this NY Times article -- http://www.nytimes.com/2003/08/13/te...agewanted=1&th.
    Now where is that patch?
