    Sounds like the Blaster Worm. Only way to really get rid of it is a reinstallation of windows. Hope this helps (if u havent got it fixed yet)

    Yes I do. I also have a PC. I think its gone now. Maybe it will strike me again silently. Does anyone know how to get rid of it. Or do I have to re-install?

    I was angry that day. VERY angry :p

    No need to reinstall...

    Check www.symantec.com they have removal tools for lots of viruses, and they definitely have a Blaster removal tool.
    After the removal finished, it'll tell you to download a certain patch at MS, install that patch, and you're done...

    There might be several tools for several revisions, just start with the most recent one.

    I've got a worm before, and it SUCKS. Had to completely reinstall Windows. However, that was before I got a Mac.
