    worms are computer programs that spread themselves often through a network.they don't corrupt files like virus does but spread themselves thus causing traffic in a network or reducing system performance.Worms can also be used for good purposes but i wont be discussing it here.and i guess it is not possible to cure it without an antivirus.

    as you are saying that antivirus slows down your PC.I might give you a suggestion.

    don't use high AVs like kaspersky or BitDefender use some light weight AVs like Panda, AVG etc.it will help and try to keep your C: drive clean with good space that will increase your performance and clean you CPU often

    worms are nothing but malware program that generally enter your system through a network and may harm system in some way or the other.it replicates itself and infects the whole system.
    obviously if your system is not well protected as in your case without an antivirus then it infects the system easily.
    moreover, if you access websites or open emails with attachment whose sender may be unknown to you more will be the chances of infection by worm.
    well if your system is already infected the only way to get rid of it now is to either use an anitivirus specially an updated one to remove it.
    or you have to format your whole system and install windows all over again.
    these are the only options left with you and onc e your system is clean.
    make sure : you dont access new websites specially suspicious one which lures you with money,prizes etc.
    b) try not to open attachments unless you have confirmed they are sage otherwise.
    c) try to get your system upgraded a bit and start using antivirus.

    Hello,
    • Check to see if the problem is adware or your own programs that are just lagging up your computer. Open the Task Manager [CTRL + ALT + DEL] and look at the processes tab. Find any processes that have an abnormally high Memory Usage. If you don't recognize their names, you may have spyware, however, you should not try to disable them in the Task Manager.Go to google.com and type in the names of suspicious looking executables. Pages like processlibrary.com or neuber.com are good at identifying malicious processes. [Note: some viruses disguise themselves as windows processes, it is well worth googling0 everyprocess in task manager to find out which could be malicious]





    • 3
      When discovered which processes are malicious, go to My Computer and search your C:\ drive for the executable. Delete the executable and any associated files. If an error message saying it is in use, stop the process using task manager and try again.
    • 4
      When dealing with executables disguised as windows processes, search for them as described in the previous step. And if any duplicates appear in the search results, Take CARE to only delete the suspect file that is not where it should be i.e. not in C:\WINDOWS\System32. When identified as malicious, delete the executable and associated files as before.
    • 5
      Adware often comes 'packaged' with other programs such from places such as Yahoo! and Smiley Central. By not installing/downloading these programs you minimize the amount of adware/spyware you get. Delete these programs first.
    • 6
      For all other Spyware/Adware download a free, easy-to-use anti-adware program like Spybot-S&D or AdAware. AdAware is a bit easier and is recommended for inexperienced users. NOTE: These programs will catch what the other misses so install both.
    • 7
      Also there is free 'AVG free edition': "AVG", and Avast Home Edition: [1], which are a free anti virus programs, and should find any or most viruses and Trojan horses in your system, and that gives the same protection as Norton or McAfee, and that sends regular updates automatically and by request (avast is automatic).
    • 8
      Use a browser such as Mozilla Firefox, which blocks most adware.

    Regards
    -Abhishek

    Computer worms are malicious software applications designed to spread via computer networks. Computer worms are one form of malware along with viruses andtrojans. A person typically installs worms by inadvertently opening an email attachment or message that contains executable scripts.

    1. Protect your computer with strong security software
    2. Use a security-conscious Internet service provider (ISP)
    3. Enable automatic Windows updates
    4. Use caution when opening attachments

    hiii
    Worms are infected programs that when executed affects the efficient performance of any system into which it has been installed or run.
    Worms are spread by file sharing through connectivity,internet file sharing and download from unauthorized or pirated sites. Once they are into your system they replicate and slowly but steadily damage the efficiency of the computer.
    They often invite trojans to join them to create blunder injuries to the system.
    Mainly worms are spread through messaging attachments from email received from unknown or wierd source.

    Generally an anti virus software is installed to destroy this worms like the Avast,Avira Antivir etc. And you do not wish to use any. Still you can go for light weight anti virus devices which won't influence the performance of your computer.
    Or you can delete or format all files and reboot your system. Install the OS again to get rid of such malwares.

    A computer worm is a standalone malware computer program that replicates itself in order to spread to other computers.
    The only solution to remove such worms is to install a powerful antivirus software like Avast, AVG, Kaspersky, Quick Heal, etc.
    Then only you can get rid of such worms.
