    Will Ad-aware stop my machine getting infected with the BlackWorm (MyWife.d) worm ?

    Hi EskimoEd,

    this has nothing to do with Ewido and I don't think it's good to rely on adaware for cleaning out worms nor trojans...

    Quote from Ewido site:
    "We offer you realtime protection against these threats:

    Hijackers and Spyware
    Worms
    Dialers
    Trojans and Keyloggers"

    So it better take care of BlackWorm, it's a known worm.

    As Infinity has ponted out...NO, Adaware would not be able to prevent infection of that WORM.......

    However, if you are in need of a "FREE" ANTI VIRUS PROGRAM just post back an someone will no doubt suggest one to you.......

    The WORM in question gas the ability to do serious damage an pre-cautions should be taken immediately..if not sooner!

    Its not my way to suggest any particular Program so the choice is therefore entirely yours. It is highly suggested that you do install an anti virus program.
