Hello Jim, The process described is legitimate for removing the HighTraffic Adware/Spyware. See http://www.pestpatrol.com/PestInfo/H/HighTraffic.asp The HighTraffic adware connects to an ad server while you are browsing the Internet and downloads ads to your computer. It is especially dangerous because it can allow the downloading and execution of arbitrary and unmanaged code on your machine. What I don't understand and question about your sister's question is where did she get the email from? How would anyone else know if she was infected or not? I always suspect unsolicited email of any kind, and that sounds a little fishy to me... except that the instructions appear to be legit which makes no sense if there was anything malicious in the email. At any rate, if she does not have these files on her computer she is not affected and need not do anything. If she does have these files, I would ask her to follow the directions on the PestPatrol site given above to remove the pest software.

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.
