    Removing the scheduled tasks created by Conficker can be tricky as it's not easy to tell if the task is legitimate or not. Microsoft's KB does suggest removing all AT jobs...

    Virus alert about the Win32/Conficker.B worm

    Remove all AT-created scheduled tasks. To do this, type AT /Delete /Yes at a command prompt.

    @ SYSMAN_MK : Am using version 1.01

    @ Sophos Support : am just deleting any task called AT, I have found machines with anything from 3 to 21.

    Am also having trouble removing it, when I do a full scan as requested by Sophos to perform the action to delete it still doesn't let delete the conficker virus file.

    how to get rid of the stupid thing

    COMPUTER VIRUS



    A computer virus has been detected on various school networks.



    The NOD32 anti-virus software will quarantine this virus but the alert screen keeps appearing and needs to be closed over and over again.



    We have consulted with Eset who supply our anti-virus software and they have provided two patches which need to be applied to all servers and computers.



    Please see attached file ( Virus Removal Tool.Zip ) and perform the following on all Servers / Workstations ASAP :-



    On ALL Servers Run the WindowsServer2003-KB958644-x86-ENU.exe file

    On ALL DEVICES now run the EConfickerRemover.exe File

    In the NOD32 Tray Icon browse to System Tools / Quarantine Area & Highlight and delete any quarantined files – ( you may need to go to Advanced mode in newer versions of NOD )

    REBOOT



    If necessary run :



    On a Windows Vista PC’s run the Windows6.0-KB958644-x86.exe File

    On a Windows XP PC’s run the WindowsServer2003.WindowsXP-KB958644-x64-ENU.exe File





    NOTE :- You Can create a startup batch file for the client workstations containing these exe’s

    "\\UNC-PATH-TO-EXE-FOLDER\WindowsXP-KB958644-x86-ENU.exe" /passive /forcerestart

    "\\UNC-PATH-TO-EXE-FOLDER\EConfickerRemover.exe" -autoclean



    If the virus is detected please run the Remove FixDownadup symantic tool which will perform an intensive scan however it will and take several hours to complete.
