Blaster worm I think. It's taking advantage of the RPC vulnerability. Go onto M$ or symantec.com websites for cure and cleanup. I'd advise making sure you have a decent firewall on you machine or router in future as they stop it from happening in the first place (when configured properly of course :) )

Yeh, when I completely stripped my other computer and put it on the network, it had that blaster virus straight away :(

At least I knew how to fix it, and what it was (there was a massive scare a few months earlier)

I really dont see the point in dual booting. I couldn't be bothered to reboot just to play a game. Windows isn't as bad as people make out anyway.

Please just delete your post otherwise you'll have two pages of *nix zealots ranting to you about how much easier it is to command line everything.
