I have had this virus so many times i cannot count! i just DECLINE the file transfer, simple! Have you got a virus checker? i would reccomend running a full system scan just be safe.

This virus is often first sent to you as the username, and then when you decline, it sends it as choke.exe. You also get strings of winking smilies from those who have caught the virus.

Something about the president was in too. President Bush....

I know what it is...
i cant get it off the computer, it doesnt show up anywhere on my computer when i press ctrl/alt/del
but i know its on the computer coz i know where the file is, and it does those winking faces and the words about president bush..
I just want to REMOVE it
