    Hi whoever!

    I am new and naive to this forum type stuff. But I have a question.
    I recieved an email from my ISP saying that my machine *may be infected* by the blaster worm. So I imediately ran a virus scan and nothing was detected.
    My Nod32 is ALWAYS UP-TO-DATE as is my ZONEALARM PRO and WINDOWS CRITICAL UPDATES.
    They suggested I go to the symantec site, but i'm thinking why do that when I already have the best protection around with Nod32. So I go to the Nod site and there, there is no mention of W32.Blaster anywhere. Should I be worried about this.

    Hi theken,

    NOD32 has Blaster covered (all variants) for ages; have a look at this thread ;)

    Your ISP doesn't deserve a compliment: either they state your system actually is[/i] infected, providing facts to back it up, or they should not send you such a message.

    You might hop over to our free services page and perform a free online full system scan.

    I'm fairly sure your the result will be your system is clean ;).

    Keep us posted.

    regards.

    paul
