>:( Just a warning that some sick individual has been sending this nasty virus via email, in my case my ausfish email address. I received about 10 the other day and 7 today. Do not open and definitely delete anything that you are not expecting, from someone you don't know, (even if you have heard of them ie Harro), with RE: as the topic and the size 42k. Thankfully my anti-virus is up to scratch, and I have suffered no ill effects. Take care!!! :-/
It got me. Taking the hard drive into HP today as had to format and recover and ended up crashing as the recovery disks are faulty. Lucky I have a laptop aswell. Apologies to anyone on my mailing list who may have recieved mail from me. Delete immediately.

Mate, may have got it from me, I found out too late that it had been sent to me and your email is in my address book. There have been a few of this type of virus so I have decided to delete all addresses in my address book and do it the hard (safe) way and write them in as I send emails. Only hope this things can't access folders that have addresses in them from 'sent' and 'received' mail.
no didn't come from you but another guy. I'm just going to have to keep on top of my virus protection a bit more.

It got me to. I lost everything on my computer. I've got a big job now putting it all back. I've learned the hard way I've now got the latest PC-Cillin.
