    Help! :eek: I've been infected with kwbot from KaZaA, and I can't get rid of it! I'm running AVG/Zonealarm on Windows XP Pro. AVG it detects it but won't get rid of it. How can I get it off my system?

    I've tried looking for worm specific removal tools and I can't find any.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I ran Trend Micro's Online scanner and it did NOT detect this worm on my computer! I ran Norton's Virus Scanner with Norton Utilities and it did find it... Also it seems that this worm somehow avoids detection if you have installed Trend Micro's PC-Cillin 2000 version with updated engine and signatures!
