[Current Mood |annoyedannoyed]

Right... here goes...

I may have a virus on my PC. I know this, 'cos I had an email returned saying that I'd sent a virus infected attachment.
I am running a full virus scan as we speak.

This is what the email says

Subject: A special new game

Hello,This is a special new game
This game is my first work.
You're the first player.
I hope you would like it.

It has an attachment called SNOOPY.EXE and is over 400K is size.

If anyone receives this email from me, please let me know.
I apologise in advance

Unfortunately I'm immune from .exe viruses written for PCs.
