The W32.Netsky at mm Virus and what you can do about it.
In short:
1) Take the actions recommended here
2) Forward this to everyone you know

The W32.Netsky at mm Virus
has become so highly prevalent on computers that, at the very least, it is
no doubt taking up a great deal of your time and energy to delete every day.
If your computer is infected you are creating an incredible amount of
trouble for your customary correspondents.

If you are receiving several of these virus messages a day it means people
who have your e-mail address in their address book, or who have received
e-mail from you on their computers, have the virus. 

The only way to hopefully eliminate this virus is to advise all the people
in your e-mail address book of its characteristics and the measures which
need to be taken to remove it from their computers.

The more people you advise, and the more people they advise, the better off
we will all be from this nuisance, and it will eventually be brought under
control. If not, you potentially face months of deleting tens or even
hundreds of messages every day.

There are simple removal tools available for free at:

If you do not have an anti-virus program, or a current subscription allowing
you to update your virus definitions, we recommend you repeat this
debugging every week.

Please take a moment to review what is below in order to verify your own
computer, and we recommend you forward this message to everyone you know,
because if you did not send us a message, the probability is high, someone
who has your address on their computer is infected.

Best Regards,

The W32.Netsky at mm Removal Tool does the following: 
- Terminates the W32.Netsky at mm viral processes

Obtaining and running the tool
