How to remove an MSN Worm

I have noticed lately that MSN Worms are on the rise, most of my contact list has had one since last year, I Nearly got one, it usualy starts with something like "Is this you on pic?" and then they would have a link, now clicking this link and downloading the zip/exe is okay, now as you see its not a picture file is it? its an Exe, which means it runs a program..But if you remember they said, "is this you on pic?" So , it isnt a picture file...Dont open it! Now here is how you get rid of it,

1. If you haven’t, disconnect from the internet
2. Press CTRL+ALT+DEL (Run Task Manager) and shut down the service rndsvc
3. Goto C:\windows\system32\ and delete the filename rndsvc.exe
4.To make sure you dont get this again,never ever double click on any executable file (*.exe) received from unknown sources, especially those says that it’s an image file but then turned up as executables.

I hope this has helped you, if you need more help on this email me at key-kun@hotmail.com
