Yes the wintsk32 is a indicator of the W32/Yaha-R (Win32) worm any of the major anti-virus software programs like Norton, Macafee, Sophos will be able to discover and remove it since this worm spreads by emailing itself please email ALL of the contacts in your Outlook or Outlook Express address book and tell them that they may also have been infected they should install and run a good antivirus program on their computer here is the Sophos antivirus webpage with a description of the problem and the way to fix it. http://www.sophos.com/virusinfo/analyses/w32yahar.html you may also go to the Symantec.com (Norton Anti Virus) search page http://www.symantec.com/search/

and type in wintsk32.exe for an exact match to the current variant of this Yaha worm It is either the [email protected] or [email protected] worm
