    hi, I am from Switzerland and you'll don't believe me,
    but a trojan horse in on your pc.
    I've scanned the network-ports on the internet. (I know, that's illegal)
    And I have found your pc. Your pc is open on the internet for everybody!
    Because the smss.exe trojan is running on your system.
    Check this, open the task manager and try to stop that!
    You'll see, you can't stop this trojan.
    When you use win98[me=tempnexus]you can't see the trojan!![/me]

    On my system was this trojan, too!
    And I've found a tool to kill that bad thing.
    I hope that I've helped you!
