PC World Article on home page provides good information about this virus, and refers to a security patch. I can't find the patch anywhere - can anyone point me in the right direction?

www.eudora.com (or www.washington.edu/pine/, www.pmail.com etc).

Its Outlook thats the problem, not the 14 year olds that make the worms that exploit it.

Sorry Outlook is a pet peeve of mine.

You can find the patch here:

Or probably from windowsupdate, its been around since march.


Ditching outlook is still a better long term solution.

if your car got a flat tyre would you trash it a get another? I don't so! but its the same mentallity as you're showing here.
I too have come across this type of virus and ditching everything (as appossed to a simple repair that may be out there) doesn't seem logical to me. :(
