ME: There's an easier way.  You can find out how to get rid of that
virus (it's actually what's called a worm program) at:

http://www.avertlabs.com/public/datafiles/valerts/vinfo/va10184.asp

For that matter, any time you encounter a virus or worm, it's a good
idea to go directly to one of the sites that specializes in such
matters, such as McAfee.  They're usually right on top of these
things.
