SUPU.EXE is file that worm I-worm/Plexus.A creates. It also creates a script file a
You need to delete both these files. At least thats what I did, thankfully my system wasn't badly infected since there was no registry alteration. (I wonder why ????). And that's it.

Make sure your windows is fully up to date via Windows Update. Also make sure you're behind a firewall.

I read all comments and I realise that I have supu.exe. The behaviour of the PC it's the same with your descriptions but I can't find any file named supu or upu.exe. Is thet possible or it could be another virus that perform the same with supu.exe

It certainly could be. The advice is the same regardless: run an up-to-date anti-virus scan.

If you're getting reinfected, make sure that your playing safe on the internet. You probably need both a firewall, and a realtime virus scanner. This article has more: http://ask-leo.com/how_do_i_keep_my_computer_safe_on_the_internet.html

SUPU.EXE is not a dangerous worm it just affects some websites by slowing them down....
don't worry if u get message from ur anti virus that supu.exe file detected in your system containing worm...so just heal the file or move it to vault or quarintine
