Microsoft Security Updates for Conficker Worm
  

The Conficker worm is a computer worm that can infect your computer and spread itself to other computers across a network automatically, without human interaction.

Microsoft released a security update in October 2008 (MS 08-067) to protect against Conficker.

If your computer is up-to-date with the latest security updates and your antivirus software is also up-to-date, you probably don?t have the Conficker worm.

If you are still worried about Conficker, follow these steps:
1. Go to http://update.microsoft.com/microsoftupdate to verify your settings and check for updates.

2. If you can't access http://update.microsoft.com/microsoftupdate, go to http://safety.live.com and scan your system.

3. If you can?t go to http://safety.live.com, contact support at 1-866-PCSafety or 1-866-727-2338. This phone number is for virus and other security-related support. It is available 24 hours a day for the U.S. and Canada.

Try Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool, it checks computers running Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows 2000, and Windows Server 2003 for infections by specific, prevalent malicious software—including Blaster, Sasser, and Mydoom—and helps remove any infection found.

Use Windows Live OneCare safety scanner, it is a free service designed to help ensure the health of your PC.
