I got three copies too! Damn hackers and their stupid viruses. Let's start a campaign to buy every virus programmer a rusty old Mustang to restore. That'll keep 'em busy for years and they won't have any time to write more viruses!! Who's with me??
I know this is not what everyone wants to hear, but the reason I use hotmail and not my family address is because of virus's. Hot mail caught all of the letters from Toby Keen and told me they had a virus, DO NOT OPEN.
You should be running a good antivirus software like MacAfee or Norton Antivirus and if you have DSL or cable modem you need a good firewall like zonealarm.com, the firewall will warn you about suspicious emails that you can then scan. The firewall will also prevent hackers from getting into your computer while you're logged onto the web. I've gotten viruses in emails from several people, but the subject is so obvious and any email with an attachment you're not expecting should be deleted.

I am running Macafee, and the reason I didn'rt think that it caught the virus was that I didn't recieve a notification of detection, BUT it did catch the viruses in the attachments and it only showed me the E-MAIL itself, it removed the attachment before it got to me! YEE HAW!!
I'm truly sorry guys. Somehow the bug got by my virus catcher. I didn't realize I had a virus until I was notified that I had one. I have since employed further protection that is supposed to catch this type of thing in the future.
Once again, I'm really sorry for any trouble I caused any of you.
Toby, had three more this morning. My anti-virus caught it for me and I really wasn't trying to blame you-no need to apologize! Just wanted to make you aware and figured you'd see this before you'd get an e-mail. Hope you can get it fixed!

was Speaking with my brother yesterday, he informed me that he had gotten a Virus thru Email the other day , seem's like someone has sent out this virus that attacks your Email Contact lists and ICQ contact lists its a worm that will send out Email to all people on your contact list, ( Just my luck im on both of his contact lists so I expect to see a virus soon ). He had gotten the Infected Email from my Aunt who got if from her Daughter and didnt even know she was infected at all and hadnt sent an Email at all to my brother.
The Email he recieved was titled something like "you have to see this Screensaver" so keep an eye out for email like that from people that you know and trust it could be a Virus .
