Hi Al and welcome on board


I haven't come across this virus and have just run a check of known viruses, this isn't one so I would presume that it is one of the 'seasonal' hoaxes.

Try running Start>Find>Files or Folders and putting it in as a search. There is a possibility that you have downloaded the file. If you find it delete it.

Here is a good resource of known viruses: http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/vinfodb.html

In your AntiVirus software see if there is an option for using 'Heuristics' if so select this.
What it does is detect possible viruses even if not known, by the file's attributes.

Regards, Dave

Not a virus. Just a little funny critter - that could get very un-funny if it kept hanging around I suppose.

If you delete the .exe it should not keep worrying you though. And if it refuses to go away, reboot after you delete the email it arrived in and .exe and it will be gone forever.
