    re: HOWTO: Details and Removal of Conficker/DownUp/DownandUp/Kido Worm

    You forgot to put links to Removal Tools though you said they were 'giving out free Conficker Removal Tools'.

    Anyways,

    http://www.symantec.com/content/en/us/global/removal_tool/threat_writeups/FixDownadup.exe

    ftp://ftp.f-secure.com/anti-virus/tools/beta/f-downadup.zip

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...E0-E72D-4F54-9AB3-75B8EB148356&displaylang=en

    Above 3 links are Removal Tools specifically for Conficker/DownUp, DownAndUp/Kido Worm. Does not work for any other viruses.

    And, for others who wish for another Source to Conficker Worm, refer to http://cantalktech.com/2009/01/21/how-to-remove-downadup-conficker-virus/. All these could have been found by Google easily.

    Since many users have been infected by the Conficker Worm, I shall Sticky this for awhile.
