Win32:Host-C is bugging me

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
During the last 2 days I have been swamped by a Trojan called
"Win32:Host-C". These worms were all caught and eliminated by AVAST,
however. Still, this recurrence is very annoying, and I fear that this beast
has invaded my system.
I have read that this worm disables a number of firewalls and other security
programs (among them the WindowsFirewall and other well known programs).

What can be done to stop that? This worm was discovered first on March 23,
2006... but someone here might have caught it and know more on how to react.
