I received the enclosed warning today and found the virus on my hard drive.
Since it is passed from address book to address book, please check your own
hard drive.  I have successfully dealt with it by following the instructions

Dear David,

Thank you for the warning.  I found the little rascal skulking on my hard
drive and have managed to successfully delete it following your instructions -
I'll hot foot it around folk in my own address book.

Thanks again - and a belated happy New Year - we'll speak about the RPS thing

  I just received an email that said I might have a virus that is spread
   from address book to address book. It is apparently undetectable by
   Norton and McAfee. It remains dormant for abut 14 days then activates
   and wipes out the hard drive data. When I checked my hard drive, I did
   find the virus and successfully deleted it.

   Since I have you in my address book, I want to share this message in
   case you, too, picked it up. The directions for removing it are quite easy
to follow.

   1. Go to 'start' - then to 'find or search' (depending on your computer)

   2. In the 'search for files or folders' type  sulfnbk.exe -- this is
   the virus.

   3. In the 'look in' make sure you're searching Drive C.

   4. Hit 'search' button (or find)

   5. If this file shows up (it's an ugly blackish icon that will have the
   name 'sulfnbk.exe') DO NOT OPEN IT

   6. RIGHT click on the file - go down to delete and left click.

   7. It will ask you if you want to send it to the recycle bin, say yes.

   8. Go to your desktop (where all your icons are) and double click on the
   recycle bin.

   9. Right click on sulfnbk.exe and delete again - or empty the bin.

   If you find it, send this email to all in your address book, because
   that's how it's transferred.

   Sorry for the bad news. Hopefully, you won't find it, or at least will
   find it in time to avoid the problems with your hard drive.
