    I run DR Web here Look N Stop and don't have any issues but it could still be a false positive.
    To start with download and reinstall Look N Stop then scan again but be sure to set Dr Web CureIT to only report any nasties found, not delete or cure.

    Relevant past thread, with some suggestions.

    This is a small, harmless Internet worm that exploits a buffer overrun vulnerability. It is in memory only and it does not drop any additional files.

    According to that thread, the AV was actually alerting on the Slammer Worm signature in firewall logs -- the system had not been infected, but rather the firewall had blocked the worm but logged its signature. ;)
