Kaspersky Lab offers a free removal tool for users infected by the Mydoom Internet worm. The utility detects and deletes this dangerous malicious program. CLRAV scans the computer memory and hard drive of the infected machine, neutralizes the worm and restores the original configuration of the Windows system registry. Additionally, this removal tool copes effectively with other malicious programs, including Klez, Lentin, Opasoft, Tanatos, Welchia, Sobif, Dumaru and Swen. Given the current outbreak, CLRAV is most useful for users, who have installed anti-virus protection that does not detect and delete Mydoom correctly. Kaspersky Lab recommends that users close all active applications before launching CLRAV. Once the utility is installed, the machine must be restarted. Finally, it is best to launch an anti-virus scanner to perform a comprehensive virus check. You can download CLRAV from http://www.kaspersky.com/removaltools.
