    OK, It would seem virus-like - but if it were, wouldn't I be able to find information about it?

    Here's what happened;
    I got an email from Postmaster@aol.com.
    It was a simple DAEMON message, "message undeliverable" yada yada yada - you know the drill.
    Only, I never sent the message, and attatched to the returned message is "May 9.exe" ----- looks like a big OOOPS! doesn't it?

    Anybody know anything about this mysterious May 9.exe ?

    I swear, I have been unable to track down any info on it using Google, Symantec, or other repositories of knowledge online???

    Any clues would be greatly appreciated. If I got some kinda' virii, I want to take appropriate steps ASAP!

    Hmm, If it's virii -- it would appear I may be the proud owner of the first machine on the planet to be infected.

    I hate to act rashly without more info though.
    FYI; this attatchment is 91kb in size, rather large for a virus isn't it?

    Hey Mr. C, you've gotta have an old POS computer laying around not in much use right? I would pop the virus on a floppy and the go see what happens on a computer that could use a clean install. :D

    A fine idea!
    umm, let me ask the wife if it's OK if I use hers:laugh:

    Or maybe Wiggo could ask Kay if she's ready for a clean install

    My POS systems (let's keep in mind, they were the bomb - back in the day) are seldon used and uncluttered. If I could keep my butt out of the forum long enough, I do need to nuke this drive rather badly. I just keep putting off going through the backups to see what I need to save, not much really though:D
