I installed McAfee Total Protection 2 months ago. 2 days ago a Blaster worm got under the McAfee radar. It is blocking everything except the Internet. I cannot get into MS Office, defrag, Task Manager, my anti spyware programs or McAfee. The only thing I can do is a scan. Here is the info from there IP Number. HELP!!!! I'm unemployed and can't afford to lose all of the information on my hard drive.
IP Information - 184.108.40.206

Go HERE and download the FREE version, update it and then run a full scan. Let it remove anything it finds and reboot id asked.
