This is the fact.

I don't know all the names or paths the Blaster has muted in, but my computer died yesterday... caused by Blaster... again.

And antiviruses are not effective at all (only Norton works, but I don't think I will be for a long time)

My advise is to delete the exe files (I only know 3: belt, the most destructive; powerS and istsvc), the ini files (they are only created if the virus has been activated somehhow) and the ink files.

My problem is now solved, but the Blaster had attacked my antivirus and it didn't find any virus, although it was updated.

I hope none of you have thi virus, and if you do, I hope it not to mutate again...

Hi Rocío,

Yes... Dec 1, 2003

But Windows dind't work on my PC, so I had to delete the viruses manually, and I installed the patch afterwards. (Afortunately, I know someone who can deal with this kind of problems..)
The problem is that the virus is mutating so fast that it can infect your computer before a patch is made...
