O T Virus Alert

Recommended Posts

One of the easy diagnostics for this worm is to check your Windows Update status (Start - Windows Update). Look on the right side for whether Windows Update is set for automatic updates. If yes - then you are probably fine (Conficker turns off automatic Windows updates). If not - turn auto updates ON. If you cannot turn them on - you have a high probability of having the Conficker worm and need to fix it asap.
