    Have a friend with XP Home and he has the virus. Did a google search and have done some reading. I know there is a tool. My question are the more then one tool out there to remove it ? Thanks

    Hi bandonisp, (we gotta stop meeting like this!) ;) j/k

    McAfee's AVERT Stinger is a pretty easy tool to use, and I believe covers all the variants of the Blaster worm now.

    Hi bandon
    I was hit with blaster some days back as and when I was helping another friend of mine to eradicate the worm :p.
    I removed the worm from her machine(was helping online) and then I kicked mine one too.
    snapdragin hit the bull's eye with stinger. It does catch and delete the virus at first instance.
    run it , but I would say you also to tell him to post a hijack log so as to be completely sure

    thank you
