    My virus detection software(Norton), keeps giving me a
    message that I have the W32.spybot.worm, infecting my
    computer. The infected file, is called ipgbuel.exe. The
    software cannot quarantine, delete, or do anything to rid
    my computer of the worm. In other words, Norton is
    worthless. I have tried repeatedly to manually find and
    delete the file, but the search reveals no such file.

    How do I get rid of the worm????

    Turn off System Restore. Restart in Safe Mode. Scan again.

  3. In addition to what Gatekeeper advised, check for more information on the
    Symantec page:
    http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.spybot.worm.html
    You'll have to shut down System Restore, and go back in thru safe mode to
    get this one. Be aware that it has the capacity, and I have seen it, to act
    as a keystroke logging program also. I suggest you change any passwords that
    you use on the machine as soon as you disinfect it.

    Kung,
    Have a look at the Norton webpage
    http://www.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.spybot.worm.html. This page
    describes the worm and how to manually delete it.
    Incidentally, it looks as if you may have just posted your correct e-mail
    address....good luck!
