I didn't as I actually hadn't heard about the worm until after April 1st. I'm fairly sure my computer hasn't been infected, but I'm running my virus software just to be safe (I run checks periodically anyway, incase anything has slipped in). Microsoft has also made a 'malicious software' scanner available to search for the conficker worm, which I'm taking advantage of (even though the bugger takes forever to scan).
I didn't hear anything about it so I've done jack all. I have a scanner that runs but it's out of date - by a month - so it wont stop anything it hadn't updated for before it crashed. I'll get a new one soon.

I think that it could very well have been a media ploy to go against pc's. Who knows...although I haven't heard of anyone who actually has been infected by the worm yet, so it must have either been the ploy or overhyping a worm that just wasn't as bad as they originally thought.
