    Hup. Sorry, I just deleted it with NOD32. It said it could not clean the virus, so I thought that meant it couldnt do anything. I just noticed it had delete :-)

    Well, it just popped up again in another file. I think maybe it is spreading?

    Woah... the Blaster virus... old school :-)

    You need to get a patch from MS to prevent becoming reinfected over and over again.

    Then you'll need a virus removal tool or similar to get rid of it.

    This Symantec Page has all the info you need including a removal tool and links to the MS patches for W2K or WXP (only affected OS's).

    I am guessing you are using win xp?

    If so disable System Restore (Note: you will loss all your System Restore points) then that will help with removing it.

    > Woah... the Blaster virus... old school :-)

    I donít think so....

    This is what Blaster is called:

    W32/Lovsan.worm.a [McAfee], Win32.Poza.A [CA], Lovsan [F-Secure], WORM_MSBLAST.A [Trend], W32/Blaster-A [Sophos], W32/Blaster [Panda], Worm.Win32.Lovesan [KAV] source: http://securityresponse.symantec.com...ster.worm.html

    There is northing there that says: Lovsan.E

    mejobloggs: are you shore you got the name right?

    I do...

    Lovsan.E is the same as Blaster.E it's just another variant of Blaster.

    The Symantec Removal tool linked off the page above removes Blaster A through F so will get rid of the Blaster.E (Lovsan.E) virus.

    All variants of Blaster (Lovsan) infect through the same port, so you definitely need the MS patch and the removal tool.
