    It isn't just McAfee. From what I've seen almost all security companys have made a removal tool for this "Conficker"

    If a persons AV is upto date, and the system Patched for Conficker - there shouldn't be a problem really.

    Mind you like many others that work in this business, and see it all the time - lots of people take security as " it wont happen to me" attitude - until it does Bit!!

    Here's a question --- April 1st --which time zone USA / Aust / NZ ???
