Yeah, you're right, I don't know if NAV alone will stop it. I don't know if Mongo has the virus or not, but he has the symptoms. He's doing a scan right now. Blocking TCP/IP port 135 and installing this patch from Microsoft, appears to have fixed the problem for him.

I am really stupid when it comes to installing "Blocking TCP/IP port 135" and things like that. I just learn to live with it!

If they set up when I install the program then they are there, if not then I don't know a thing!

And you call yourself afiremen.....

In a fire, I know what a fire stop (wall) is, but on the computer, I am lost as how to put them up!

Xp has a built in firewall.. if you enable it. I've never heard anything grand about it though.

Zonealarm (firewall..) is available for free, and is often recommended.

Zone Alarm

a free antivirus program called AVG.. info here

The XP fire wall sux if you share files and/or printers on a inturnal network. It disables all file sharing. I like zonealarm. I run it on top of the hardware firewall built into my cable/dsl router.
