    I ran adaware and noticed this critical worm. I deleted, rebooted, ran the adaware again. It was still there. I then deleted some recent emails I received, rebooted, ran adaware again, and it shows the worm is not there. Did the same again, no worm. I run Thunderbird and Firefox.

    I'm not the greatest with computers, have I gotten rid of this worm, or can it still be hiding somewhere, if so what should I do to look for it?

    Thanks.

    was probably attached to an email in a file you (hopefully) didn't open.

    I probably did open the email, not even sure which one.

    run it through your registry and rip it out if it is persistant
