If you are receiving the emails, it doesn't mean that you are
infected. There are two sorts, those that appear to be a Microsoft
Security Bulletin and those that appear to be virus reports. Both are
symptioms of *someone else* having Swen. If the check comes up OK, you
are almost certainly OK.

Still, it's good to check.



The complete lack of evidence is the surest sign
that the conspiracy is working.
