    Exclamation Worms

    Well people Im just alerting that certain worms have been going around attached as screen savers (some like the American Flag, others like Bill Clinton, etc.) and have been widely infecting computers. Stupid ****ing crackers...

    No. The worms use Outlook's API for the attack. Renaming it won't help.

    Try using Norton-Antivirus, or McAffee against those creepy worms. Those anti-virus apps. really help.
    Btw, .scr worms/viruses can do many malicious things just as the .exe viruses do.
    B/c windoze treats them like executable files (almost).
