    I've never heard of that one but I think Nimda is a lot worse. I had a hell of a time getting rid of Nimda.
    I compile code with:
    Visual Studio.NET beta2

    anonmail is a type of thing where people can send you emails totally anonomously, and basically they pretty much just send you viruses all the time.

    I ran that virus checker and it said I had one file infected by Nimda, so I deleted it and looked for the other signs of infection (readme.exe, eml files etc) but counldn't find any. I then ran the Symantec Nimda fix tool and it said it could find no trace of the virus. Strange .
