The text next to the Icon says something like "Click here for pics of Anna Kournikova", usually these viruses are written in Visual Basic. The icon looks like a piece of script with blue writing on it, followed by the extension ".vbs". Never open an attachment that look like this. It attaches itself to every address in your e-mail account and sends a copy of the virus to each one. Thus, it can spread as quickly as it does. And with as many of us that share e-mail addy's, it could really kick our ass in no time!!
I am by no means a computer expert, this is just knowledge I've picked up along the way. Later!
