    I've got it and it takes 1.91 Gigs on my computer - not to mention

    it's full of VIRII. I delete the files, the directory, reboot and it's

    still there. Any help would be very much appreciated.

    - Thanks

    How to NOT catch the virus

    Here is how to determine whether the file contains the virus BEFORE you download:

    1. DO NOT DOWNLOAD FROM THE USER TheKazzaOne@KaZaA!!! All the files listed under this username contain the virus!!!!

    2. The file targets two categories... Porn and common illegal software. If you are downloading either, scan your files before opening!!!

    3. For porn fans, the file comes is various sizes ranging from 2-9MB and contain the string "porn sex f$$k tits boobs (can't remember the whole thing)" in the discription. All the files, no matter what the title or file name, contains this as the discription!

    4. Also for porn fans, the file comes as a .mpg and the title is exactly the same as the name.

    5. For illegal software fans, the discription of all the files are the same (I can't remember the string of words right now). Just note that if you see files with the title the same as the file extension and they all seem to have the same discription, scan the files before running!

    If you are infected with the virus and your virus scanner doesn't detect the virus, here is a free tool that will remove it:

    Hope this helps!
