This thing is rampant. I've received it three times today as an attachment
from dnsanchez@msn.com (whose messages I have now blocked; you might
consider doing that in advance). It's morphed from an earlier Klez virus
that Norton now can cope with. Don't let your Norton lapse--it always
catches up eventually! Don't open attached Xmas greetings if you don't
recognize the sender! This is not a nasty virus, one of those evil worm
things, just prankish. In the earlier version, which I was also lucky enough
to get, it (a) made me unable to get the Norton quarantine notice off my
desktop (that is fixed); (b) cricket sounds, not unpleasant, turn up at
irregular intervals, even when I'm playing music (that has just started up
again, though I opened none of the attachments).

Merry Christmas, every one,
