    The patch is useless if you try to apply it after May 1, 2004 AND your PC is infected with the virus. :o If you applied it when it was released (April 13, 2004), then you're set. If you do have the virus, Norton's is the recommended tool for the job.

    The good thing about that link above is that people can see if they're infected.
