Using Ad-Aware crashes Windows XP

Question

When I scanned Windows XP using (a paid for) Ad-Aware a new screen comes up saying that I have to re-boot and check all recent loaded software or else I will damage the Windows system. I reboot in safe mode and log onto administrator turning off System Restore. A quick scan reveals a Win32.Worm.Kido. File c:\windows\system32\seful.dll. Ad-Aware tells me to re-boot so it can be deleted which I do. After re-booting I still have the worm. Can anyone help. Edited by JerryVaughan

That is one of the most nasty worms that has infected windows based computers over the past 2 years. Microsoft put out a patch to keep computers from getting infected with this worm. I guess you have not yet applied the patch and let this into your system. It usually gets on your computer through removable media like USB drives or across a LAN. Now you will need expert help to remove this worm.
