How do you get rid of this virus? I have run several programs and it doesn't show up unless I send it to someone and their system blocks it. I don't use Symantec.

I also want to know if there is a way to get rid of this virus? I have run several virus scan programs and no viruses show up on my computer. I am able to send plain emails with no problem, but when I send an attachment with the email, it is usually blocked or for those that can receive the email, they tell me that they are receiving 5-8 copies of the same email. Is there a way to detect and clean up my outlook express virus?
