    Hi Weber,

    There are a few free removal tools available for this, a quick search pointed to (among others!)

    one from BitDefender

    http://www.networkingfiles.com/AntiVirus/opaservfree.htm

    from Symantec

    http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.opaserv.worm.removal.tool.html

    Panda

    http://www.pandasoftware.es/library/pqremove_en.htm

    I have personally only tried the one from Symantec but that was at the very start of the "epidemic" and it didn't work well at first but they gradually ironed out the issues as the variants became known. It should do the trick for you.

    HTH,

    Dan

    Thanks Dan

    I also found a removal tool from F-Secure and i'm trying to remove the virus. I also searched all computers in the network and found another infected computer.
