Mark, the virus is actually the email itself. You have deleted a file that 
is necessary to the running of your computer. I have a file on this on my 
home computer that explains how to reinstate that file -- I'll find it and 
email it to you and the list as a whole later. In the mean time, anyone 
else who received the note should ignore it (i.e. don't delete the 
sulfnbk.exe file).  Susan
