Default Virus from Russia ??

I just got an email saying " for you from Russia ". There is a 4.37 Mb file attached in .rar format. It says RoomEQwizard V4.11 .

I don't plan to open it. Is this a virus ? Anyone else got this email. Senders name is Russian. But that doesn't mean a thing.
By the way RoomEQwizard is from a person called John on Hometheatershack I think.

Never have unprotected sex with Haitian prostitutes. Never call a large gentleman holding a gun "***face." And never open an attachment from someone you don't know (and even then, caution is advised since friends can be spoofed).

It could be anything.. It might even be the software it is represented to be, but I would just delete it..

Run it in sandboxie and see what it does (or tries to do). I had big fun with a virus a couple of days ago like that - played with it for awhile, then killed it and threw it out.

The Turk's luv to use their big *** swords - and take their time - when getting a little personal "payback". BTW - they are REALLY GOOD with those swords!

My Dad served with them during the Korean War and had photo's and stories about how they would sit around the campfire - get about half loaded up and then start doing folk dances with their swords and sparring with each other. Turkish Marines - I strongly suggest you give them your fullest respect. BTW - they are super guys and I do intend this in a positive manner.

Thomas, my line was meant in a figurative speech.

(though anecdotal)
