It amazes me the way this thing keeps changing it's name. I got the same virus a couple of days ago from "Education Dept." with different filename. I didn't open mine either, just got rid of it. I've recieved two other email bombs in the last week. Thats more than I usually get in six months. Didn't open either one, thank God. Things are getting very scary out there! Always be suspicious of an email that comes with an attachment, especially from someone you don't know! Those rat bast*#ds really need to get a life!
