I've just found this virus on our PC
http://uk.trendmicro-europe.com/enterprise/security_info/ve_detail.php?id=58746&VName=WORM_NETSKY.Z

I haven't downloaded anything lately and I havent opened any emails from strangers with attachments so I dunno how the heck we have got it, but we have.
Our daily antivirus scan didn't get it but housecall from TrendMicro spotted it & we are in the cleaning process as I type.

So to be on the safe side as its one of those wildly propagating worms I'd recommend a visit to housecall for a free checkup

oh & if you do find you have it and you are running windows ME or XP be sure to delete your restore files as well as the infected file or it will keep reinstalling itself
