    pfff, best to remove your email address in the future...

    is your system fully updated? did you tried to scan your system in safe mode with your security software?

    Does AVAST have a worm-blocking ["mini-firewall"] feature? Are you running the Windows firewall or a third-party firewall [ZA, Outpost, Sygate, Norton, etc.]? Is your system fully patched with all the critical updates available from Windows Update?
