Post IMPORTANT-VIRUS MESSAGE
Racer X fans,


If any of you have Windows NT, 2000 or Windows XP go to this site to download the patch to prevent this worm. If you have XP, select the 32bit version.

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/treeview/default.asp?url=/technet/security/virus/alerts/msblaster.asp

If you already have this virus, go to

http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.blaster.worm.removal.tool.html

Download and launch the removal tool.

If you are unsure if you have the virus, hit CTRL/ALT/DELETE (all 3 keys together) to pull up the dialog box. Select TASK MANAGER, then hit the PROCESSES TAB. Sort by NAME and look for MSBLASTER.EXE running on your PC. If you see it, you've got it.

Do not delay removal or the patch. On August 16th, the virus will take over your PC and start sending packets to Microsoft to take down their website.

Also, simply removing the worm and not applying the patch, will mean you can be reinfected.
