Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool Online

Here we go again. With the recent "Zotob" worm that is making the rounds, we Windows users are probably in for another flurry of activity as hackers try to out do each other and impress us with their "skills."

Through CNET I learned of an online tool that will check for and remove "malicious software" from your Windows XP, 2000 or Server 2003 computer.

The scan took about a minute on my XP machine and the good news for me is that it's clean. At least for now!

You can also download the tool from Microsoft's website.
