Subject:
BAD NEWS! I got a virus and chances are you have it
too since you are in
my address book. It lies dormant for 14 days - then
it kills your hard drive.
This information has been confirmed and passes
through Nortons Antivirus.
GOOD NEWS! here's the directions on how to stop it.
By the way, if you've got it, send this to everyone in
your address book so they clear their hard drive and it
doesn't come back to you.
Directions are easy.
1. Go to 'start' - then to "find or search"
(depending on your computer)
2. In the "search for files or folders" ty=e in
sulfnbk.exe -this is the virus.
3. In the "look in" make sure you're in Dr=ve C.
4. Hit "search" button (or find)
5. If this file shows up (it's an ugly blackish
icon that will have
the name "sulfnbk.exe") DO NOT OPEN IT
6. Right click on the file - go down to de=ete
and left click.
7. It will ask you if you =ant to send it to the
recycle bin - say yes.
8. = Go to your desktop (where all your icons are)
and double click on
the recycl= bin.
9. Right click on sulfnbk.exe and del=te again -
or empty the bin.
If you find it, Please, send this e-mail t= all in
your address book
because that's how it's transferred.
K just letting you people know, see ya.<P>------------------

Sorry, I tried to delete your message and they I remembered that I can't do that anymore, at least not unless Keenspace fixes my administrator name. (which for some reason, went corrupt months ago, and I've been using this one.) Actually my mom and sister got that virus. But I never download stuff with vague descriptions, even if it's from someone I know.
