OK? Well, I hope I won't get infected again, my business has gone to hell because of this week's delays. I read that MS has a patch for it, but my PCs are up to date and registered to Microsoft. Wikipedia (not to be always believed) claims that conficker can be removed by other antivirus applications but mcafee can remove it on demand, which is costly. Is this possible? I don't know what to think. I am very dissapointed with this antivirus.
McAfee is supposed to be able to remove it as described in those links. But, as I said, no anti-virus is perfect.
Your updates - are they set to "Windows Updates" or "Microsoft Updates" there's a slight difference, because the latter can be set to alert for both critical and non-critical updates for other components/hardware/software installed on your system, not just Microsoft stuff.
They are set to windows updates. Let's see what happens. I am still in the second week of my trial period for McAfee. I could ask for a full refund if needed. Anyway, let's see what happens next. Thank you very much Ex-brit, for your help.
RE: And what if the quarantined file is a basic Windows EXE file?
Mark it "Solved through formatting hard drive" All these applications that you recommend are adware free? are they completely safe? I am going to use them, but are they resource intensive? Thanks again for your help.
