Folks: According to the Symnatec anti-virus site, the "Sulfnbk.exe" is a recent hoax. They write, "CAUTION: This particular email message is a hoax. The file that is mentioned in the hoax, however, Sulfnbk.exe, is a Microsoft Windows utility that is used to restore long file names, and like any .exe file, it can be infected by a virus that targets .exe files." See http://www.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/sulfnbk.exe.warning.html
