Right wow panic on there a bit, right this is a worm and its a twat, will cause all kinds of problems for you, uninstall ya sound card that kind of thing. If you have winxp sp2 and its setup propperly that should keep u safe, on a reboot the pc willa sk if you want run.exe to run you select no.
but that aint a fix you will neeed virus software such as norton but it can only be quarenteened because it attaches it self to exe files u need to run certain programs.
Worse thing is if you get this it will be as a message from one of your msn contacts with a link. mine said <blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica">quote:</font><hr> rolf, is that you? <hr></blockquote>
and with a link that included my msn e-mail adresss so I clicked on it and pow downlad n stuffed. then it will go to everyone in your list that is online at the time.
norton say this. (http://www.skirge.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/this.JPG)

The trouble with this file is it cannot be dleted, I thought my pc wasa clean I had Norton 2004 and ran it every Friday it came up clean every time, it did detect the worm I got from MSN but I went n got norton 2005 and it found 16 files LOL
