Here is the recommended way to manually remove the worm:

Delete WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SKA.EXE, then delete the WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SKA.DLL
file.
Next, rename the the WINDOWS\SYSTEM\WSOCK32.DLL to WSOCK32.WRM and then
rename the WINDOWS\SYSTEM\WSOCK32.SKA file to WSOCK.DLL. You may then
delete
the WSOCK32.WRM file. Finally, find and delete the downloaded file,
usually
named HAPPY99.EXE.
