At 10:30:43 my systems rebooted after installing hotfix "Windows 2000 Hotfix
KB823980 was installed" and machines rebooted.  Any ideas on how to remove
this or what it may be?

Considering the amount of email traffic generated by responding to

not?

well if you dont tell them they wont know, altho with sobig the return
address 
is false anyhow

it would probably be best to cache the sender/virus combinations and send a 
single message per 7 days
