Question email virus

I ahve been getting this same email sent to me every day and some times twice a day.Anyone else receiving it??
Driving me nuts having to keep deleting it.

It reads,"Dear friend , use this Internet Explorer patch now!
There are dangerous virus in the Internet now!
More than 500.000 already infected!"

and it included a patch.exe

Thats it nothing else, no other info.

Re: email virus

Its a virus, delete it :)

Someone that has you on their address book is infected, probably why you keep recieving it.

Dunno, but our head office security guys sent out a warning about the W32.Swen.A@mm virus. That could be it. Just make sure your anti-virus software is up to date and you'l be right.
