RE: What to do about this virus???

Deborah might not have the virus. Someone else on the list may have it.
The newest virus, not only raids the address book of the infected
computer to send it self out, it also pretends to be someone else in the
address book. This happened to me. My Uncle's computer was infected. The
virus kept sending other members of our family e-mails with the virus
with my name and address in the from box. It took a month to convince
them it wasn't me and figure who was sending the e-mail.

you only get the virus as far as I can tell if you open the attachment
that comes with the email.

Deborah needs to get and run a good antivirus program.

Don't open attachments unless you expect them.
Delete all e-mail with unwanted attachments asap.
