Last been modified may of 1998... What does this Icon "a supposed windows command " do ? Anyone know ? " sulfnbk.exe " I havent deleted it and won't till I find out what the file is.... I have a feeling we all have this file as part of our Windows ... I could be wrong... Thanks Realist out CHECK THIS OUT DI !! I DID & FOUND THE VIRUS SITTIN THERE IN MY C DRIVE. I FOLLOWED THE DIRECTIONS & GOT RID OF IT IN A HURRY. LUV YAH !!! ~~**DIANNE**~~ I found it on our computer after following the procedures below. It goes out to all in one's address book, so you all may have it as well. Please go through the following procedure. My apologies if you have it. This virus lies dormant for 14 days, and then kills your hard drive. Here's how to stop it. If you've got it, send this to everyone in your address book. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!­!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!­!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!­!! Remove it by following these steps: 1. Go to "start" - then to "find or search" (depending on your computer). 2. In the "search for files or folders" type sulfnbk.exe -- this is the virus. 3. In the "look in" make sure you're searching Drive C 4. Hit "search" button (or find) 5. If this file shows up (it's an ugly blackish icon that will have the name "sulfnbk.exe) DO NOT OPEN IT!! 6. Right click on the file - go dow to delete and left click. 7. It will as you if you want to send it to the recycle bin, say yes. 8. Go to your desktop (where all your icons are) and double click on the Recycle Bin. 9. Right click on "sulfnbk.exe and delete again-- or empty the bin. If you find it, send this e-mail to all in your address book, because that's how it's transferred!

It's a normal windows file. It has to do with long file names. It's supposed to be there. Norm

deleting it will screw up your computer, so in essence the Virus warning is actually the virus
