I need an interpretation....
In an article in the Globe and Mail http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/RTGAM.20030813.rvirus0814/BNStory/Business/ this morning, there's a passage on how dial-upers can deal with the length connection time required for the fix from MSupdate for this MSBLAST worm making the rounds. In particular:
There is the chance, though, that some users — particularly those who use Windows XP — may not be able to stay connected to the Internet long enough to down*load the fix.
Security software experts say those users should physically dis*connect their computers from any network, including the Internet, then manually delete some soft*ware files and adjust some other settings before going back on-line to get the fr*e fixfrom Microsoft.
Or am I misinterpreting this passage?

To me it sounds like the worm has certain properties which can impede your ability to download the patch. By removing parts of it(while it is not online) should enable you to download the patch and finish the cleanup.
