I've had quite a few people try and send it me over the last couple of weeks, however the worm itself (over 8 or 9 variants) has been around for 2 months or more now.

I'm thinking of writing a flippin' tutorial in getting rid of it, as I've told so many people that they have it on their computers and are totally unaware of it....just shows how many kids look after their PC's :D

... writing a flippin' tutorial...
I haven't encountered it myself yet -I'm very suspicious- but I guess you would do many people a favor. Put it up on your site for easy linkage: presto!

Yeh Steve - Symantec released a fix tool for bropia (well two fix tools to cover different versions)..I've been handing out copies to loads of kids I know so they can shift it from their PC's. I havent got it luckily, and havent got it. Even if I did, my AV software would detect it straight away, as AVG is pretty bullet proof.

Norton Antivirus is total rubbish mate, get AVG Antivirus - even the free edition is better than NAV full stop :p
