How I have numbered error messages!  >:(
Nothing else were displayed, not a single plain text telling what was happening?

Do you know anything more about that specific virus?

Can avast team publish a list or error messages with their numbers?

bmoreno,

Information about the virus can be found at these links:

    Computer Associates: http://www3.ca.com/virusinfo/virus.aspx?ID=35519.
    Panda Software: http://www.pandasoftware.com/virus_info/encyclopedia/overview.aspx?lst=vis&idvirus=39837
    Symmantec: http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.jeefo.html
    Trend Micro: http://www.trendmicro.com/vinfo/virusencyclo/default5.asp?VName=PE_JEEFO.A

  From the aforementioned CA article:

hmm symantec reates it CAT 1. So how did bmoreno get it if it is not so wide spread?

MacLover,

They all pretty much said it isn't wide-spread.  Another site I looked at listed it as not in the wild.  Go figure.  He must be very lucky.   ;)

bmoreno,

Beating the odds like that, play the lottery tomorrow.   ;D
