Hi
Check for the Welchia worm. Start Taskmanger - look in
processes - tick box for show all processes - if you see
one called DLLHOSTS.exe then you're infected. Delete that
process. Go to somewhere like Symantec's site and
download the virus cleaner tool. Run it then make sure
you do a Windows Update to get all the necessary security
patches.
Good luck.

Greetings --

If you connected the PC to the Internet without having _first_
installed the KB824146 Hotfix, without having _first_ installed an
antivirus application with current virus definition files, and
_before_ enabling a firewall, you're very likely to get infected from
any of the thousands of PCs on the Internet that are constantly
broadcasting the Blaster and/or Welchia worms. It only takes a few
seconds of exposure.

To stay on-line long enough to get the necessary updates, patches,
and removal tools, click Start > Run, and enter "shutdown -a" when the
next RPC countdown begins. This will abort the shut down. Also, make
sure you've enabled a firewall before starting, to preclude any more
intrusions while getting the updates/patches/tools.
