Someone emailed me and said that I have a virus! They said it is the HAPPY99? What is this and what can I do to get rid of it?
The Happy 99 virus sits on your computer causing a duplicate e-mail containing the virus to be sent with every e-mail you send. You must have received two emails together with the same subject line, that when opened, displayed fireworks instead of text. Do not send any emails until you have cleaned your system. This is a virus that has been around for quite awhile now so any updated virus software should take care of it effectively.
