Meanwhile this may help: http://community.mcafee.com/docs/DOC-1092
Have you updated windows fully and scanned all machines on your network? Some machines may need to be rebooted and scanned again after the !mem detection occurs.
The document ex_brit has pointed you at is definitely worth reading, Additionally this site has a wealth of information.
Hope this helps!
Even in scan it show me no virus but after 1 day when i scan it again it show me that message again also it is still showing me that buffer overflow message (which i think came due to that worm ) . I have already installed Microosoft patch for not to get that worm again. If you need any further file please let me know.
Just for reffernce I am not gettiing any sort of message on 90% of my network only few are still giving me that messages.
Sorry for old post but I have the same problems. I fullscan, reboot, fullscan (still detect conficker with No action taken). So seem McAfee can not delete this virus?
Conficker is old and should be eliminated in any up to date operating systems and McAfee has long detected and eliminated it. You are going to have to figure out where it's coming from each time. I see you are in the Enteprise environment so I don't to know too much about that but if anything in the last link in my signature below helps, you're welcome to try.
There's also an excellent removal guide here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-downadup-conficker
Of course there's always a chance it's a false alarm.
There is a wealth of information available here: http://www.mcafee.com/uk/threat-center/conficker.aspx
Particularly this document, which is old but stilll very very valid: http://downloadcenter.mcafee.com/products/mcafee-avert/documents/combating_w32_c onficker_worm.pdf
If, once you've worked thourgh this, you are still seeing issues, please do contact support by telephone.
Thanks Ex_Brit, i will try. Why McAfee doesn't have Conficker Removet Tool like Bitdefender
See the links Sam Swift posted. Any up to date system should be immune to Conficker, so make sure yours is up to date. McAfee VirusScan detects and removes it anyway. If it's coming back then it must be hidden somewhere, maybe in a network drive or a restore point maybe, or something that's plugged into the system somewhere.
There's also the Stinger tool, see the last link in my signature below for the link.
You could also try running the software in Safe Mode perhaps.
