My sister sent the following letter. Seems like I heard something simular a 
year or two ago. I told her to delete the e-mail, any advice is 
appreciated...Jim Harris

I had a virus alert in my e-mail that said i have a virus called winppr32.exe 
in my system &registary keys. It said to open DOS comand promp 
windows(fromStart,Programs>Accessories) and enter the following commonds  
:cd"%windir%system"regsvr32/uBHO2.dll regsvr32/uMSNIE.dll  then RestartWindows 
and I should be able to delete the BH02.DLL  & MSNIE,DLL files in the system 
folder.(the system folder can be found in the windows folder:It is called 
System 32 in XP & just System in 95 & 98. Now I wonder who would send me such a 
report- I went to every thing Panda has & tried a few other free scans. Far as 
I can see there is no-such virus,  but maybe you can tell me what would happen 
to a persons computer if they did what this report said to do.
