^ A simple test is that if you can visit Microsoft.com and can update your Windows using Windows Update then probably your computer is not infected by Conficker.

My computer got infected with conficker virus a few days ago.. I tried everything but could not get rid of it from file system, so i switched to ubuntu and happy with it

nope i am not infected either

Linux FTW :D

My net is again on track (LDN)

May be because I have installed that patch of microsoft for this virus, mentioned by DJ NOMI.

I restarted the system and now its working fine from last one and a half hour.

I am experiencing slow browsing!!!!!But downloading is okay....!!!!!!!!I have PTCL given by local cabel net..I am able to open microsoft site and update the windows....

Am I the victim of virus too!!!???

I am sure that I am suffering due to extremely slow browsing but normal downloading speeds....!!!!!

^ Yeah I'm having some browsing issues ! Any way to remove that virus ?

But format and reinstall is always my first preference :) Last time when my Windows got problem, I didn’t even think about anything else, just formatted and freshly installed it. :)

You have to find your inner peace and over your nightmares of reinstalling Windows. :) You’ll feel like you are closer to Nirvana. Beating a dead horse is frustrating.

Fresh Windows always works faster and less prone to errors. Many experts says that an installation of Windows has an age of 3 to 6 months before it starts to spoil like milk into yukky curd.

Find your inner peace and install a fresh copy of Windows.

Now, its my time for meditation :P

what? you a monk? :P

Best way is to install your OS and all softwares, change their settings to your desired settings, then create a back-up (create a back-up of your whole C Drive with any software that allows you to restore it when you boot). It takes less than 2 min to restore XP (compared to installing Windows and configuring softwares which could take hours).

Kaspersky saved me from Conficker :D
