Overnet OWNZ eMule in my opinion.

I downloaded eMule, and their Help File. Thanks a lot ! It put a WORM on my computer. Luckily Norton Internet Security picked it up, but the alerts would not go away. Finally I had to delete eMule and the help file and the copies it made on my computer. I guess I should have scanned it before putting the help file in my eMule Folder. I hope there is someone who can look at this problem, so the next guy does not get this worm. cheers, Harrison
