    I keep getting these e-mails from someone that is claiming to be Microsoft with some Update for Internet Explorer and they have Viruses attached to them. I know because Norton Anti-Virus is detecting them each time and deleting them. Its really annoying because its wasting my time and filling up my Inbox too. Is there a way to stop this from happening? I tried to block the idiot in the Web Interface for SBC Yahoo! but it didn't help enough. I hope someone can help me out, thanks!

    "Beware email from [email protected]

    In keeping with other self-replicating worms Palyh then scans for email addresses to forward itself onto. It searches for files with the extensions txt, eml, html, htm, dbx, wab and selects lines from them that it believes to be email addresses. Then Palyh will use the SMTP server to send out copies of itself to all email addresses found on the infected machine."

    You probably have a friend(s) that is infected and doesn't know it.
    I would suggest you check if all your friends have run updated anti-virus software.
