ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Internet providers expect phones to be ringing off the hook this morning with calls from internet users who may not have checked their computers for the malware that took over computers about a year ago.

The FBI turned off the redirect servers that allowed users to connect to the internet despite being infected with the virus.

So if you didn’t do the check and clean before midnight this morning, your only help is going to come from your internet providers.

Most internet providers have a solution to help customers reconnect, but you’re still going to have to get that malware off your computer.

There were roughly 250,000 computers still infected last week and while that’s a small number when compared to the number of computer users around the world, if you’re one of them,  it definitely matters to you.
