McAfee's Stinger takes care of this, or at least supposedly does. maybe some of you guys on the ISP sides can
place a copy in a public ftp for your users.

What I've noticed from looking at a few people who were infected with it
is, IE and OE gets toasted with OE returning the 0x800ccc15 which on XP
has to deal with a bad McAfee install, and or timeouts. Now, I had this
one person I was on the phone with who had this error but was still open
to ping via DOS prompts and actually resolve out, and have information
returned to him. For a quick fix without having to reinstall I had him do
a system restore to a few weeks back, then reconnect and download stinger,
voila, fixed.

Currently running NMAP on the company's /18 to figure see if we can
notify users of this issue.
