Any recomendations to add to Kaspersky A/V ?

Hope Kaspersky alone will do it.
From what I've read, it bypasses internal computer time and syncs to external site clock.
But better safe than sorry I suppose.
The virus first came to widespread international attention in January 1992, when it was revealed that a few computer and software manufacturers had accidentally shipped products, for example Intel's LANSpool print server, infected with the virus. Although the infected machines numbered only in the hundreds, the resulting publicity spiraled into "expert" claims of thousands or even millions of computers infected by Michelangelo. However, on March 6, 1992, only 10,000 to 20,000 cases of data loss were reported. The news media lost interest, and the virus was quickly forgotten. Despite the scenario given above, in which an infected computer could evade detection for years, by 1997 no cases were being reported in the wild.

I do have one suggestion for anyone who is infected with this virus, or is not sure they are infected.
As this month draws to a close and the April 1st date does get closer, it may be a good idea to roll your PC clock/date back a week, just till we see what the widespread symptom of this virus does to the majority of the machines it has infected.
If your PC does not roll-over to the April 1st date, it CANNOT ACTIVATE whatever the "worm" is designated to do.
I personally do not feel it will "wipe your hard drive" as some have speculated.. but one can never be too sure.
Just a friendly heads up.
