    virus

    We got the Nimda virus and I was told that the only way to totally get rid of it was to clean off our server and reload everything. I just want to have clarified what is meant by "clean off' Is this unloading and deleting all programs and files, is there a shortcut through the dos prompt to do this?

    "Clean off" means you must dowload the cleaning tool (I reccomend from
    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.nimda.a@mm.removal.tool.html>http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcen...moval.tool.html</A>
    ) and simply run it from Windows.

    This is just the 'fix tool" I already did that. I was told by two techs that I needed to completely wipe out, clean off our server and reload everything fresh. ????
