Monday 300,000 people are going offline because their computer is infected. Here is where you can see if you are one of them.

A bit more information :
However, I do reckon a lot of it scare-mongering (Remember Milenium bug, 11-11-11 etc etc). Been loads of these types of stories, but none ever materialise (he says, putting hand to head [touch wood])

Dude if you have seen peoples computers I have worked on in the last year ...
I mean who gets a virus that was put out almost 5 years ago....
Well I can name a couple of people that did
I bet bottom dollar there will be a TON of people calling their isp's complaining.
They do have a pretty good idea how many just from looking at the logs of the dns servers.

I have cleaned up friends pc's just to have them return sometimes the next day saying it is still messed up when I look at their history alone you can clearly see where they get it or they for some reason believe every email they have in their inbox needs opened, read and then you must click on the links to see what goodies can be found. I stopped working on friends junk for free because they just don't get it and am tired of telling them how to avoid the mess.
On the 5 year old virus thingy. It is amazing even when you have their software set to receive updates and they don't even click the update button when prompted it just continues to run in the background using up more resources all while they get another virus or spyware that the update could have prevented and this will go on for a year or two then they bring their pile of junk in once again for you to fix.
I don't even mess with it any more. I make an image of their install, when I fix it the first time, and only do a fresh install anymore. Not even worried about saving files, I just tell them if they don't start taking responsibility for their junk I cannot be responsible for it either. Charge the same no matter if it is just a simple fix or not (on the idiots that is). They all get the, SORRY! gotta reinstall because you are an idiot and lazy, its your money and I am just the guy to collect your moron tax.... approach...
Hmmm... I recall a thread just a few days ago talking about that same percentile of the population that makes you stare in disbelief while shaking head slowly.......

One of the best virus/hack removers is one of the most popular downloads on my security site. It would not hurt you to run it on any computer you have problems with see:
