you are advised to take the following security steps to enable you to download the security update. The security update from Microsoft will lock off the ports that the virus is attacking.
Click on start >then Run > then type Services.MSC > When that opens up you need to scroll down the list to the top remote procedures call (RPC) > Right click on this and select properties > click on the recovery tab > you will see first failure > second failure > subsequent failures these will be set to restart as default. Change these boxes to "restart the service" then click "apply" and "ok". Close services.MSC.Then press Ctrl,Alt and Delete.Select Task manager and then the processes tab.Select MSBlast and then end process.This will "kill off" the process and allow you to then connect to the internet and download the patch.
Taken from the BT Status Line. I'm sure they won't mind me filching it. The patch is detailed in numerous other threads.
u cant use system restore on xp 2 get rid of the virus because it is a software package which is saved on ur system. u need to go to click here and then download the patch. also u can go to run> msconfig. open up the system dialog box and untick the 1 that says msblast.exe after u need 2 enable ur firewall by opening network connections in control panel and tick the box that provides the firewall in the advanced box. GOOD LUCK PEOPLE. come to think of it if u do a search for msblast.exe and right click > Properties u can change the compatability to Windows 95 because it wont work on that OP. CHEERS.
