    Go to
    Search for blaster in their search field.
    They have both manual and automatic fixes that should be
    able to clean you box.

    Set the RPC Service to "Take No Action" and reboot, this should allow you to download the patch and install it.

    The MSBLAST RPC infection virus was only created to affect
    NT, 2000, and XP based operating systems.

    You should be fine.

    Left click on "services and apps." Left click "services"
    Right click on "remote procedure call (RPC)" <not the one
    that says "locator"> Left click on "properties"
    Left click "recovery" change each drop down menu
    to "restart the service". That should keep you on line.
    Set these back to "restart computer" after have everything

    You most likely have a worm W32.Blaster.Worm
    DISCONNECT the subject computer from any network IMMEDIATELY.

    Install or enable a firewall IMMEDIATELY:

    VERY IMPORTANT to follow ALL steps, closing ports or installing the
    patch is NOT enough.
    Download the patch and regedit referenced in the article below.
    You may need to do this at an uninfected computer and burn to CD or
    save on floppies.
    Each file is small enough to fit on a floppy.

    Follow this to clean and protect your computer:

    After this is resolved prevent similar occurrences by installing ALL
    Critical Updates from Windows Update.
    Keep antivirus up to date and run at least weekly.
    Install or enable a firewall.

    I would also advise AVG, Grisoft Anti Virus software, which is free. As I
    read somewhere else Norton Antivirus is great but requires some sort of
    exorcism if you want to uninstall it, for instance. Besides it's not free.
    I've been running AVG for a long time and I quite trust it.

    My pc was infected with the worm 2/3 days ago along with
    my laptop. I have ran patch on laptop and it solved the
    problem, but I got error during running the patch on my
    PC. Both laptop and PC has Windows XP.
    The error is:
    KB823980: Setup error: Setup could not verify the
    integrity of the file update.inf. Make sure the
    cryptographic service is running in this computer.
    I would appreciate your help.

    Sorry about the earlier blank post.

    To each their own when choosing what AV to use, but I've used NSW of which
    NAV is part of since '99 and have never had a problem uninstalling it to
    upgrade to the next version when necessary. No special tricks were involved,
    I just used add/remove programs and it was gone. I'm now using NSW '02 along
    with conflicts between them. I will say that trying to use McAfee
    and NAV together is difficult at best....they don't co-exist well together.
    If one should decide to use two AV programs, be sure to set them to auto
    scan at different times at least four hours apart.

    Not that it causes troubles while uninstalled but it leaves components
    behind that are difficult to remove manually since the uninstall procedure
    is incomplete. You can check and/or ask for more info on
    news:// I've had a chat with someone
    there about antivirus systems, including NAV. It's where I've been reported
    about the difficult uninstalling.

    I have NEVER had trouble with Norton products unless you count using
    the tool Norton provides for complete removal.
    However there is something far more important especially because most
    users never have a need to remove the AV application.
    What you consider best and for what ever reasons is no good to another
    person that doesn't like it and thus will not use it.
    The best AV application is the application the person will properly
    use and update.
    For you that is AVG, but not for everybody.
    For someone else it is McAfee and another Norton etc.
