Conficker is a nasty wormy-type virus (malware) that can pretty much render your PC useless to you (but not the deviant who created it)!

Follow the steps in the article below before April 1 or else you might be faced with a computer that really doesn't work any longer.

A month or so ago, a client of mine was so badly infected that it was necessary to completely rebuild his PC.

This is a good reminder to ALWAYS:
  1. Keep your PC up to date on OS patches
  2. BACK UP!
  3. Get a solid antivirus utility and keep it up to date
  4. Hardware firewalls are a must!
  5. Internet Explorer should be called "Internet Exploder"

Run a Conficker removal tool before April 1
