Kak creates the following files on your comp
kak.htm in c:\windows
a temp file with the extension .hta in c:\windows\system will be numbers then .hta the numbers vary
kak.hta in the windows startup directory

Then the worm adds the following lines into your AUTOEXEC.BAT file and renames the original autoexec file to AE.KAK.

@echo off>C:\Windows\STARTM~1\Programs\StartUp\kak.hta
del C:\Windows\STARTM~1\Programs\StartUp\kak.hta

and creates a registry key in

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows \Currentversion\Run\cAg0u

and

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Identities\Software\Microsoft\Ou tlook Express\5.0\signatures\Default Signature

Just delete the above files and registry entries.

you may also want to run this security patch from microsoft which fixes the vunrebility exploited by the kak worm
***********.microsoft.com/technet/treeview/default.asp?url=/technet/security/bulletin/ms99-032.asp
or uninstall outlook express and IE 5

Alternately there is an automatic removal tool available you should be able to get one fron symnatecs website
