What should you do now?
------------------------------------------------------------

If you sent the email from a corporate network, you should first 
contact your local Helpdesk or System Administrator for advice. 
They will be able to help you disinfect your workstation.

If you sent the email from a personal or home account, you will 
need to disinfect your computer yourself. To do this you will 
need an anti-virus program. We suggest using one of the leading 
industry anti-virus packages such as McAfee, F-Secure or Cybersoft, 
which cost 15-30 per copy.
