I do not know how long it has been on my computer, but no Virus software
can detect it. It will become active on June 1, 2001. It might be too
late by then. It wipes out all files and folders on the hard drive. This
virus travels thru E-mail and migrates to the 'C:\windows\command'
folder. To find it and get rid of it off of your computer, do the
Go to the "START" button.
Go to "FIND" or "SEARCH"
Go to "FILES & FOLDERS"
Make sure the find box is searching the "C:" drive.
Type in; SULFNBK.EXE
If it finds it, highlight it.
Go to 'File' and delete it.
Close the find Dialog box
Open the Recycle Bin
Find the file and delete it from the Recycle bin
You should be safe.
The bad part is: You need to contact everyone you have sent ANY E-mail
to in the past few months. Many major companies have found this virus on
their computers. Please help your friends !!!!!!!!
DO NOT RELY ON YOUR ANTI-VIRUS SOFTWARE. McAFEE and NORTON CANNOT DETECT
IT BECAUSE IT DOES NOT BECOME A VIRUS UNTIL JUNE 1ST.
WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT OPEN THE FILE!!! >>
