The message below, sent to autox from your computer with an attachment
(happily refused by Majordomo) indicates that your computer has a rather
unpleasant virus. This virus was just added to the virus scanners
yesterday. Any scanner that was not updated before yesterday will not be
able to stop or detect it. It is properly known as "W32.Goner.A@mm",
spreads through ICQ, (the interactive messenger) and Outlook Express.

Expert info and fixes can be found at

Many of these viruses only complete their work when you first reboot
after infection. Problem is that most scanner updates will not become
effective until after a reboot. With that in mind, you should try out
Trend Micro's "Housecall" as a solution for the future. Housecall can
scan your computer with their continually updated scanner by simply
dropping into their site and having your computer scanned (and often
cured) while you are online. It is a good back up scanner taking little
