>>We've found that downloading both the appropriate patches and cleaning tools, and then disconnecting from the network (as in unplug your ethernet cord or hang up your modem line) before you run them both - patch then clean - works and prevents you from being re-infected during the process.<< For those who can't download the fixes first, you should be able to turn on IP filtering in the network properties (it blocks incoming connect attempts), permit nothing, to allow yourself time to get to windowsupdate and get patched. With XP just enable the firewall. Geo.
