Blaster/Sasser.variant Virus RRS feed

  • Question


    I am running Windows XP and have OneCare.  I keep having a Security box popping up that states I need to activate to get the full protection because I have a virus called Blaster/Sasser.variant.  What can I do to correct this problem?

  • Jim,


    I seem to be having difficulty with locating the correct path that you have suggested.  I just need someone to tell me what is going on so that I can have a simple fix to correct this issue. 


    Can you lead me from point A to point B without sending me in twenty different directions?

    I support Jim's reccommendation. Also, you can try downloading the scanner at http://safety.live.com download the scanner and do a complete scan not a quick scan. See if this picks up and takes care of your issue. Post back if you still continue to experience issues.
