My wife's PC had been getting the same thing for a week or so. I think it finally stopped. Norton picked it up everytime as well. The email addy says [email protected], right? It's most likely spread by someone unknowingly through their address book. About the time the virus stopped attacking my wife's PC was the same time I was "volunteered" by my wife to work on her friend's computer. I installed AVG and it immediately found the same thing in her email. Her PC did not look to be infected though. You might ask around of friends and family if they've scanned their systems or have gotten the same emails, to see if you can narrow down who's passing it along.

Some onfo on the virus:
