Dear All,

I've encountered a very stubborn worm. After I opened one of unknown word document sent by my friend, suddenly all of my saved MS Word file are automatically converted into .exe file. But if you click these file, they are opened as a normal word file.

Then I try to scan my notebook using Ewindo to remove the cause, and found out that all of those executable files are diagnosed infected by "Worm.DB.dm". Those files are quarantined.

My problem is most of those files are important ones and I need them. Is there any way to "cure" this and return them to normal MS Word files?

Please help!

Thank you.
