    Plan Colombia Virus. NO!!!!!!! (HELP)

    I have the Plan Colombia virus. Basically what it does it change all .mp3, .jpg, .css, and a few more file names to .vbs. This is a lot on my computer. My sister downloads tons of MP3's, and I have tons of JPG's because of all the funny pictures on my site. I'm supposed to delete all these to get rid of it, but I have a few questions. It also tells me to do this and I don't know how to do it. Here is what it says to do:

    Run regedit to make the following registry modifications:
    Delete HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\
    CurrentVersion\Run\plan colombia
    Delete HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\
    CurrentVersion\Run\LINUX32
    Delete HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\
    CurrentVersion\RunServices\reload

    I know how to get into Regedit, but I don't know what to do after I'm in there to delete that stuff.

    YES! I got it.

    There's no better feeling than removing a virus

    while we are on the subject...

    Dear McAfee.com Dispatch Subscriber:

    An email HOAX has been circulating recently that has received a lot of press and public attention. The subject line may contain "***Virus Alert***" or mention SULFNBK.exe. If you receive a copy of this message, you should ignore it. Do NOT pass it on as this is how an email hoax spreads. You may receive a copy of this message from addresses that you recognize.

    DO NOT DELETE ANY FILES FROM YOUR COMPUTER.

    There are several versions of this message circulating, in several different languages. The email message may appear in part as follows:

    "A VIRUS could be in your computer files now, dormant but will become active on June 1. Try not to USE your Computer on June 1st. FOLLOW DIRECTIONS BELOW TO CHECK IF YOU HAVE IT AND TO REMOVE IT NOW."

    "No Virus software can detect it. It will become active on June 1, 2001. It might be too late by then. It wipes out all files and folders on the hard drive. This virus travels thru E-mail and migrates to the C:\windows\command' folder."

    The email will also instruct you to delete SULFNBK.exe and to pass the message along to everyone you know.

    SULFNBK.exe is a standard part of the Windows operating system and SHOULD NOT BE REMOVED.

    For more information about this hoax or for instructions on how to replace SULFNBK.exe if you have already deleted it, click here.
