This thing is getting to be a real pain in the neck.

Symantic has a free download called KLEZFIX that will scan your computer and
clear any hidden kleznicks hiding in your files.

Some people think a human imposter is sending messages with their signature,
but klez grabs email addresses from any unprotected computer, then mails
bogus messages bearing the klez virus to as many random addresses as it can
find in unprotected computers.

A virus firewall is required to stop it from taking control of your machine
and spilling it's address book guts all over the web. (Happened to me last year)

I'm getting 4 or 5 a day from people I've never heard of, and the odd one
using names from this group, that have probably been snatched from an
address book on an unprotected machine of a group member.

My PC-CILLIN now snaps up worms like a hungry robbin.
