Most of (not 100%) Worms can not access Wi-Fi module preferences. Turning off the Internet will disable Worm_rbot.bou from transferring any data from your PC.

      Windows XP:

    1. Press and hold the Shift button when left-clicking the Restart button on Windows log-on screen.

    2. Select Safe Mode from Windows Troubleshooting boot screen and press ENTER.
