Use a virus tool

That virus doesn't become active unless they double click the attachment - so hopefully they haven't.

You should make a bootable diskette with an antivirus tool on it, write protect it, then boot the infected machine from it. If you have an up todate set of virus definitions it will be able to clean it.

If you don't own anti-virus software get some - I use Norton at home and McAfee at work and they both work well. There are free virus tools out there if you look.

Most of them contain the W95.Hybris.worm virus. It infects the Wsock32.dll. You can get further information about the virus from the antivirus sites.
