You said Storm Worm rewrote its program every so often. Did it actually make a copy of itself to remain active, then editted its own original code, then launched itself from there and deleted the beta copy code or did it just keep on switching between different parts of code based on time elapsed? Or was it actively rewriting its own code while using the same code to operate?

I had to manually remove the surabaya virus from my mom's pc. She has had it for 3 years, because apparently, a message in a foreign language everytime you start up isn't an indicator to a virus. So i opened the console, located it, and deleted it. Also, it had blocked parts of the antivirus, so there was a SECOND small virus which completely filled up the console with text. Eventually I did it, though.

How to prevent getting a virus, dont open everything in your Email and dont go to random website's and just be carefull and keep your self and the system updated and most important of all is be paranoid.
