This tool is awesome on the fight against W32.Downadup on large networks.
Use this tool to quickly identify infected systems and machines.
If you find infected machines, you should MS-patch KB958644 and reboot them to cleanup the system.

Is Conficker still a risk if you are using Norton Internet Security 2012?

I have had a company pestering me (www. microsystemrepair. com) telling me that they have information from Microsoft error reports that my computer is already infected with Conficker, and implying that Norton Internet Security 2012 will not detect or protect my computer from Conficker.

I do not believe them but it does make me nervous.

Any advice would be appreciated.
