If you can see all six images in both rows of the top table, you are either not infected by Conficker, or you may be using a proxy server, in which case you will not be able to use this test to make an accurate determination, since Conficker will be unable to block you from viewing the AV/security sites.

It is accurate - that is one of the reasons Downadup was hard to get rid of - it knew where you'd go looking and pre-blocked those sites.

Check HiJack log sites and read up on of the more effective Anti-malware site blocking methods used.

I see all of them to, but the top of the chart is a bit blurry. I guess I flunked then and need glasses.

The DOWNAD / Conficker Worm

April 1 has come and gone…
  • The good news: We had no reports of new major infections as a result of Conficker.
  • The bad news: While we can’t predict specific behavior for Conficker, we know it is creating a large botnet of infected PCs so that cybercriminals may at some point send spam, steal personal information (user IDs, passwords, credit card info, etc.) and direct users to malicious websites used for phishing or downloading malware. We also know that there are still infected machines across the world which will continue to attempt to recruit additional PCs into this botnet. The DOWNAD / Conficker Worm - Trend Micro USA
I guess I'm in the clear since it took longer to load the eye exam page then to post this!
