Terry,W32.KLEZ is the most profilic virus around today. We (on our company server) recieve 20 to 30 emails weekly with the virus. It is easily spread to computers without updated or no virus protection. I believe it can duplicate itself simply by opening the email. (including pane preview). Keep those anti virus programs up to date!BobP :)

Came in from the holiday with a support call on this one from our site manager, who had two such messages in his mailbox--been lucky enough to have it contained in my LAN/WAN as well. It's a worthy alert, and not entirely off topic, since any of these virus attacks can ruin a simmers day.I do recommend folks read Microsoft's security bulletins on this virus, as they may have a hole in Outlook/Outlook Express which would allow the virus to execute from the preview pane without opening the attachment--one of the first that does so. Here are the links:http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...b;EN-US;q316658http://www.microsoft.com/technet/treeview/...in/MS01-020.aspJohn, KPHX
