    Yeah, it is a virus released by a big software company based in Redmond, VA (USA).

    It has been around for many years, causing all sorts of wierd crashes, machine lockups, destroyed files etc..

    The version number changes with each iteration of the virus, but they all come from the same family.

    The latest version is called WindowsXP.....

    3 pieces of software & one piece of advice

    1. disconnect from internet or block all internet access using a firewall

    2. download BPS Spyware Adware Remover (works in trial mode)

    3. Get Mcafee - and scan with it

    4. get pestpatrol and scan with it

    these four things should sort it out

    if they fail - you can format ;D
