gal4,This is more than likely a false alarm. The person who wrote this did not even identify the virus or state what it does, other than "crash your computer" which is not an official term for a computer virus. Always use common sense. If anyone sends you an executable file, don't run it unless you know that person very well. Executable files end in: .EXE or .COM or .BAT | Also any files that have a macro language such as Microsoft Word and Excel can carry virus's such as the Melissa virus. This kind didn't really do any harm except overload mail servers on the internet but Executable files can do damage to your hard drive and even the computer's bios so be careful of any attachment in an email.------------------Joe
