    I need to prevent MS Blast Virus from re-infecting Xp and Windows Pro.

    I followed-

    I used the fix file, have used Norton Anti-virus software and used the
    patch they reccomended for them, but they don't work in preventing
    re-infection with MS Blast worm.

    And BTW could the worm affect the operating of
    I never get a succesful connection these days.

    I am using Go To My PC on MTS Dsl as host computer.
    I use Win. pro 2000 here.

    I use MTS dialup as remote computer.
    I use Win. 98 here.
    I think there something that is preventing a successful connection
    these days?

    Use to work a couple of weeks ago no problems.

    What advice could you give to me?

    Boot into Safe Mode and start your registry editor:
    Start / Run / regedit

    Navigate to:

    In the right-hand pane, look for any entry/ies that include
    DELETE it/them.
    These are the files associated with the different variants:
    Variant A - msblast.exe
    Variant B - penis32.exe
    Variant C - teekids.exe

    You just disabled the worm from running at startup, so boot into
    normal mode again, and turn off ALL system restores to purge
    your system.

    Open Windows Explorer to the ..\Windows\System32\ or
    ...\WinNT\System32\ folder and DELETE *any* of the
    files named above.

    Next, go to the ..\Windows\Prefetch\ or ..\WinNT\Prefetch\
    and find the reference to the above file/s (any reference will
    be similar to: <filename.exe>-<alphanumerics>.PF), for example,, and DELETE it/them.

    Now you can download and install the patch, configure your
    firewall and update your virus scanner.
