Keep your virus dat files in order. I found out that when Gateway put my data back on my harddrive, they neglected to put antivirus software back on my new machine. Needless to say, I have spent the last 1 1/2 hours restoring a large number of my .exe files. I guess this virus only hits the .exe files, but replicates every time you open something.

JOY TO THE WORLD!!

From what I found out about this virus, it really just takes up space. It attaches itself toe .EXE and .Com files and makes those files seem larger. If you have a huge hard drive, the virus won't hurt you. Still, its better to get rid of. Never know when you'll need all of that 50gig hard drive.
