I don't know what all the different companies call these viruses anymore, I wish someone would force a standard on them. From what I can find, this one is a variant of the Netsky virus. In any case it is a spoofing type of virus. Any notifications you get that you are the one infected are probably coming from someone else. If you are doing at least weekly scans of your system and keeping your virus definition files current you should just delete them. It also does not hurt to do an occassional scan from a web based virus scan like Trend, McAfee, Panda and others offer.

I just ran a freeware McAfee checker called Stinger that lists several variants of mydoom, although not the above by specific name, and it found nothing.
