  1. It means that an attachment to e-mail cannot be sent.
    If send , most receipts report major virus/worm and major multibal copies of message, Appears to be a
    virus with which most standard systems cannot handle nor erase or even quarenten.

  2. How do you get rid of this virus? I have run several programs and it doesn’t show up unless I send it to someone and their system blocks it. I don’t use Symantec.

  3. I also want to know if there is a way to get rid of this virus? I have run several virus scan programs and no viruses show up on my computer. I am able to send plain emails with no problem, but when I send an attachment with the email, it is usually blocked or for those that can receive the email, they tell me that they are receiving 5-8 copies of the same email. Is there a way to detect and clean up my outlook express virus?
