    I appreciate all the responses that I have received, but I still have
    one big question. Everything that I have read doesn't say anything
    about the Witty worm basically erasing a hard drive. Everything that I
    have read states that it over-writes the data until the infected machine
    crashes if it is not rebooted before it over-writes the boot sector;
    which then can cause other serious problems. Am I missing something?

    As requested by most everyone, here is more information on my system. I
    want to tell everyone that this hard drive had two partitions and only
    the second partition survived. The active partition was the one
    erased/crashed. I am pretty certain that the C:\ partition was
    completely empty. Can anyone advise? Also, the system was running ISA
    and Black Ice cause that was the way it was configured by someone before
    me. I inquired about this when I first started working here and was
    told this was double security; I think more like double trouble
    personally. As for whether or not Black Ice was updated I know as I
    wasn't here when it was built and I haven't done any updates since I
    arrived back in the last month.

    Also can anyone please tell me if Win2K Server can in fact be formatted
    while the system is up and running? I've been pretty lucky I guess in
    all the years I've been doing this (8 yrs) that I've never had anything
    like this happen.
     
    Thanks again for everyone's help;
