Conficker, also known as W32/Conficker.worm, Win32/Conficker.A, W32.Downadup, Downadup and Kido, is a worm that exploits flaws found in Windows MS08-067 vulnerability. When Conficker infects your PC, it may prevent you from accessing security websites and disables Windows system services such as Windows Security Center, Windows Error Reporting and Windows Defender. The danger with Conficker is its ability to spread itself to other vulnerable computers through network shares. If one computer in a network is infected, then it can spread to other computers within that network. Microsoft has released a patch to fix the Windows vulnerability.
It is imperative that you download the latest released patch from Microsoft Windows Update. Also, take advantage of our Conficker Removal Tool, which is specifically designed to automatically assist you with the removal of the infectious Conficker Worm from your PC. Conficker uses random file names to prevent easy detection so it is best to use an anti-virus or anti-spyware software that will allow you to scan your entire computer instead of attempting to delete Conficker's files manually.
