    So I have over 620 infected files on my computer.

    The 3 worms I've found are
    W32.Pinfi
    W32.Jeefo
    W32.Spybot.Worm

    I went to Symantec's website because they have a list of all the different worms out with seperate programs to remove them, but none of these 3 were there.

    Right now i'm digging' through my hard-drive with a bunch of shit to find these things, but not having much luck.

    Anyone run into these 3 worms and know how to remove them?

    Thanks.

    Well I ran a full scan and I have over 1,300 files infected.

    I got Norton 2004, but the worm has gotten to my command file so I can't install or uninstall anything, I was just able to run a scan on my computer (since Norton does it in a PRE-install way), but when it came to actually installing it and getting rid of the worms/infected files - it failed and a box just came up saying norton has failed, re-install it...but I can't do shit as the worm's gotten to it already :(

    Looks like I'm just going to destroy all my files and re-install XP and start anew.

    Luckily I'm buying a new computer for me this weekend, so I won't have to deal with this shit anymore, but my mom and sister would still like to have this one for themselves...*sigh* fucking worms.
