How many got nailed by Blaster?
Myself I had 3 infected with the blaster Virus and one of those also had W32.spybot.worm. These people that are doing this need to be found drug out in the street and shot.

If you still have it this is what the frindly folks at Microshaft say that you need to do:
DISCONNECT the subject computer from any network IMMEDIATELY.
VERY IMPORTANT to repair, closing ports is NOT enough.
Download the patch from the Windows Catalog.
You want: 823980
You may need to do this at an uninfected computer and burn to CD or
save on floppy.

This is the IMPORTANT fix by Ron Martell:

After this is resolved prevent similar occurrences by installing ALL
Critical Updates from Windows Update.
Keep antivirus up to date and run at least weekly.
Install or enable a firewall.

As u can see mine got so bad I could not use regedit or taskmanager till I installed the update. Good luck to you all!
