    This particular "SULFNBK.exe" message is a hoax. The file that is mentioned in the hoax, however, Sulfnbk.exe, is a Microsoft Windows utility that is used to restore long file names, and like any .exe file, it can be infected by a virus that targets .exe files.

    People seem to think their systems are infected because they are
    able to locate this file, but it is not a virus and should be ignored.
    Please do not forward that e-mail to your friends, I know you wish
    to help with all virus alerts, however you should check to make
    sure all virus alerts are real.

    SULFNBK.EXE <- NOT A VIRUS
