I have a issue on my parents computer that will not go away.
They have recently been infected with the worm : w32.blaster.worm
I read all the recent forum fixes regarding this worm to try and fix but nothing is working.
Below are the steps i have taken
1/ Run system restore : Restore point was not far enough back
2/ Running in safe mode with networking : tried to implement the forum fixes but every time i would try and search through google (fox and IE) it would redirect me to random pages. I actually could not access this site from the infected machine.
3/ Running in safe mode without networking : Downloaded the tools that were reccommeneded in the fixes to a USB drive and installed them to the infected machine. The result was that the program would run for 1-5 secs and shut down. If i tried running it again it does not open.
4/ The last step i have taken is preparing a sledge hammer to beat the virus out....
Would really appreciate any help you guys can give me.
