    The computer system at work apparently has the Blaster worm. My computer shuts down every 5 minutes. Aarrrrgggghh! So no work getting done today. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    Anyone else infected?

    You'd think a large corporation like this one would have it fixed by now. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img]

    hehe I didn't have a worm, but my cable internet was really horrible yesterday night. It lagged and sometimes turns off. I'll be surfing the web and then it won't work, It irrated me so badly.

    The compters in my lab have it. There is supposed to be a patch for it somewhere and it seems that only ME and XP is vulnerable.

    The opinions expressed here are not necessarily those of the management. And the management will be happy to hear that!

    Suzanne,

    Just got to the Microsoft webpage and download the patch yourself. It has to be done on a computer by computer basis anyways (at least according to our IT guy it does.)

    I just got email from Norton that gives the whole skinny on the blaster worm. If any of you want it I can paste it here.
    ME is not affected by it according to NAV.

    Lauderdale, Could you you paste it? I'd like to take it to work and show the boss. We can't stay on the internet long enough to check the e-mails [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rolleyes.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] . Seems they haven't bothered to update NAV or XP patches since we got the computers last year. They do complain though, about how irratating the NAV update reminder is 'cause it pops up every day [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] . I did a manual delete of the file, but it reinstalls itself after about 5 to 10 minutes if your on the internet.

    Ahhhh! The joys of owning a computer [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] !
