Remove Downadup (aka Conficker or Kido)

Remember I just blogged about this virus/worm recently, well the good folks at Bitdefenderlabs added me on twitter though I’m not sure how they got to my twitter lest it was from the post.  Anyhow that is how I learned that they have a free removal tool available at

Thanks guys!

Makes it even harder not to switch to Bitdefender…gees!!

  1. Conficker.A and Conficker.B can both be removed using free software like F-Secure’s Downadup removal software as well as bdtools which was made just for this. However Conficker.C has to be removed manually still. In just another day a fix will be made for it. You can view the Microsoft site for more information on how to remove this manually.

    • Thank you for sharing that with us, well hopefully all anti-virus software will be able to detect the virus at least! 😉
