You need to download the removal tool. Get it at www.symantec.com One of my clients got this at work and I ran the removal tool and it worked like a charm.

how did you get it?
by having NT/WIN2k/WinXP and not having the latest service packs and rpc updates
welchia was kin to that blaster virus that went around awhile back
Im sure there are still MILLIONS of people with welchia, that dont realize it

let symantec clean it.. also, be sure to do the microsoft updates from http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com
