Timemutt

If you have recently visited Timemutt.com, please
READ BELOW for an Important Warning.



Timemutt.com was recently affected with the Happy Time Worm (virus).
Once infected, this worm slowly attacks all HTML and Visual Basic Files,
causing them to interfere with the ActiveX on your computer and generally
slowing down processing speed. (Extensions .vbs .html .htm .htt .http)
If you have recently visited Timemutt.com it is important that you complete
the following steps to ensure you do not have the virus.

1. Clear Temporary Internet Files, History Files, and Cookies. -
This is done differently for each browser; if you cannot find yours, perform
the following steps. Enter the start menu. Selecting the sub-category
'settings' and click on 'control panel.' Double click 'internet options'. Click
the three buttons to clear all of the temporary files.


---
Opposite (8/15/2002 8:11:51 AM):

Mass message:
2. Remove Unnecessary Files - Either by using Disk Cleanup
(recommended) or manually deleting files, remove old files and programs
no longer used (frees up space, speeds up scan, reduces files to be
infected). Disk Cleanup can usually be accessed at:
Start Menu > Program Files > Accessories > System Tools > Disk
CleanUp.

3. Scan for Viruses - Use a scanning virus detector (it's too late for a
download monitor), search your hard drive for the worm. An excellent one
is located at downloads.com <http://download.com.com/3001-2239-
10114306.html> (30 day trial only but works well).

Acculy when ever you visit a site you download things.
You download the the Graphics and they are put into a Temp Folder.
Also when your computer visits a site, it will download the site and make it into a .html and store it in a temporary folder and that can be a virus.

Well.. the Code Red virus affected win2k/nt users by way of websites. Through ActiveX I think.

My virus scanner eats every virus it sees but I'm not going there. I encourage everyone else not to too unless Googi scans for viruses or anything o.o
