[IP] Please read: steps to rid of your virus
With all this talk about viruses I got a good scare this morning. I
don't know where I got it from IP or otherwise, I suppose that is
irrelevant. The main point is that once you have it it goes to everyone
in your address book. Yes IP is in my address book. Therefore to err on
the side of caution I would recommend everyone follow the steps below. I
am not pointing any fingers because no one really know where this
oringinated, its just one of those problems with modern technology.
The virus will show up on all of your computers
but apparently it
takes a while for it to be activated. So I am now
emailing all of you
to tell you how you can check and delete it. It is
The virus is supposedly programmed to activate after being on your C
drive for a while. Because of the delay in activation, it does not get
picked up by the anti virus programs such as McAfee and Norton. No one
knows how long this virus has been on the system. It is possible that
it had been around for several months. When it does become active, it
will erase all files and folders on your hard drive.
The virus gets spread when you send out emails and filters into
C:\WINDOW\COMMAND. In order to find this virus, follow the instructions
Click on "start"
Choose "files and folders"
Select "C drive"
Name of file to search for: SULFNBK.EXE
If you find this file DO NOT OPEN IT! Select by
right clicking on your
mouse and DELETE it. Then close the window and
empty your RECYCLE BIN.
To empty RECYCLE BIN
1. On the desktop Double click on the RECYCLE
2. On the FILE menu, click Empty Recycle Bin
The good news is that YOU HAVE ELIMINATED THE VIRUS
ON YOUR COMPUTER.
The bad news is that you have transmitted this virus
to anyone you may
have sent emails to in the last month or so. Thus
the reason for this
message. I'm truly sorry! Please contact everyone
in your address book and pass this message along.
Work like you don't need the money.
Love like you've never been hurt.
And dance like no one is watching.
