How to get rid of the popular viruses

If you’ve been infected with any of the most recent Windows viruses, you can download a free mini-scanner/cleaner from Network Associates. This application, called Stinger, isn’t a substitute for a virus scanner. It’s the functional equivalent of having to go to the emergency room rather then having regular checkups.

Here’s a list of virii that Stinger currently detects and cleans:

BackDoor-AQJ
Bat/Mumu.worm
Exploit-DcomRpc
IPCScan
IRC/Flood.ap
IRC/Flood.bi
IRC/Flood.cd
NTServiceLoader
PWS-Sincom
