Are you up to date with Windows/Microsoft Update? I ask because Blaster has been around for so long that the monthly Malicious Software Tool scan would normally prevent that from ever running. It's been around since 2003.
That all said it may be something else masquerading as Blaster. There was a rather heated discussion a while back here about the same thing: https://community.mcafee.com/thread/32808
See if anything there helps.Message was edited by: Ex_Brit on 02/12/11 2:26:34 EST PM
