    For a complete, and free, anti-virus system try AVG Antivirus.

    had the same thing

    i have had a email containing the same virus all the email says is i send you this file in order to get your advice see you later thanks the virus that comes with it as far as i can tell is a trojan horse i to was suckered in i managed to get rid of the virus by deleting the file allocation tables and the creating a new fat32 partition and formating my drive with a clean partition then reinstalling windows i contacted mcaffee about this virus and the above is what they recommended apparently they are aware of this virus and are taking steps to track down the sender mcaffee says this solution works because the virus is not memory resident so will not be locked in to memory when your harddrive is formatted




    hope this helps
