1st thing if you have xp right click my computer select properties. Then go the system restore tab and put a check in turn off system restore. Once you have removed the virus you can turn it back on.

2nd go to start run type shutdown -a

3rd download stinger.exe its a virus removal tool that will help removing the virus. Also if you dont have a virus scanner get one or you can dl AVG anti-virus for free. Run the setup update the program and then run AV program to remove it. Run it frequently to make sure you dont get one again.

You can also go to this site to get help on removing the virus:

It might be that someone has your address in
their address book. Some of these virii use a
random address from the address book and use that
as the sender address.
So anybody that has your address in the
addressbook, and got hit by these virii is a
potential source...
Sometimes these NDR (nondelivery Reports) 's
have the header of the original message in them
Then look at the first received line (bottom
most) the IP address there is the most probable
originating address
