I'm trying rid my computer of this worm/virus but can't. Does anyone know
what to do??? I've tried following microsofts instructions on this issue but
when I press contro+alt+delete and then click task manager, I don't get a
response from the computer. I have no idea how to get to c: prompt from
booting. If anyone can tell me what to do, i'de really appreciate it.

There are anti virus News Groups specifically for this type of discussion.

How do you know that you have the Lovsan/Blaster worm ?

You have provided no information to show that you have it. You only posted the conclusion
that you do.

Assuming you do have it...

When you get the shutdown message ...

Go to; Start --> Run
enter; shutdown -a

This will halt the shutdown and give you a chance to Download the McAfee worm removal tool,
Stinger: http://vil.nai.com/vil/stinger/ and install the following patch for the
RPC/RPCSS and DCOM Vulnerabilities that are addressed by Microsoft Security Bulletin
MS04-012 - KB828741
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;828741
Please read ...
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/ms04...
and finally...

You also need a FireWall.
If you don't patch the PC and not use a FireWall then you will just be re-infected.

I also suggest the installation of ALL MS Critical Updates ASAP.

Download MULTI_AV.EXE from the URL --
http://www.ik-cs.com/programs/virtools/Multi_AV.exe

It is a self-extracting ZIP file that contains the Kixtart Script Interpreter {
http://kixtart.org Kixtart is CareWare } three batch files, five Kixtart scripts, one Link
(.LNK) file, a PDF instruction file and two utilities; UNZIP.EXE and WGET.EXE. It will
simplify the process of using; Sophos, Trend and McAfee Anti Virus Command Line Scanners to
remove
viruses, Trojans and various other malware.

C:\AV-CLS\StartMenu.BAT -- { or Double-click on 'Start Menu' in C:\AV-CLS}
This will bring up the initial menu of choices and should be executed in Normal Mode. This
way all the components can be downloaded from each AV vendor’s web site.
The choices are; Sophos, Trend, McAfee, Exit the menu and Reboot the PC.

You can choose to go to each menu item and just download the needed files or you can
download the files and perform a scan in Normal Mode. Once you have downloaded the files
needed for each scanner you want to use, you should reboot the PC into Safe Mode [F8 key
during boot] and re-run the menu again and choose which scanner you want to run in Safe
Mode. It is suggested to run the scanners in both Safe Mode and Normal Mode.

When the menu is displayed hitting 'H' or 'h' will bring up a more comprehensive PDF help
file.

To use this utility, perform the following...
Execute; Multi_AV.exe { Note: You must use the default folder C:\AV-CLS }
Choose; Unzip
Choose; Close

Execute; C:\AV-CLS\StartMenu.BAT
{ or Double-click on 'Start Menu' in C:\AV-CLS }

NOTE: You may have to disable your software FireWall or allow WGET.EXE to go through your
FireWall to allow it to download the needed AV vendor related files.
