Worm.Win32.Netsky anyone know how to get rid of it?

It seems to be a virus with warns you about dozens of viruses on your PC and then suggests you buy some anti-virus software.



But when I scan with the anti-virus software I already have (McAfee) no viruses sho up.



Any ideas how to get rid of it?

I personally use "Spyhunter 4". It has a great virus-killing mechanism and helped me immensly last year when I developed a virus similar to what you're experiencing.

Worm.Win32.Netsky wants me to buy some bogus software called Security Essentials 2010, which is in fact another a virus

I can't speak for Security Essentials 2010, Gary. I can only speak for the Spyhunter4 program that I use. It did cost me $29.95; but it did isolate and remove the virus.

Never download Security Essentials 2010! It's malware disguised as anti virus software

Spyhunter4 is also malware that is also anti-virus. The program they used to get rid of my virus was something they called "ULTRAKILL". I haven't had any problems since.

Microsoft Security Essentials is about the best Anti-Virus program out there right now.



But for this particular virus, there is a free removal tool here...

I'm a cheapskate so I'm trying to fix it for free using a free trial download of AVG 9.0



It's not my PC it's my wife's girlfriends and it's all in Spanish which is a slight complication!

The removal tool above is free, and Microsoft Security Essentials is also 100% free!

Thanks if AVG doesn't work I'll try that.



Worm.Win32.Netsky seems to prevent some anti virus software from installing.



Security Essentials 2010 is the bogus software it wants me to buy for $140
