My Embarq and Blacklight both detect it running, and will supposedly rename it, but I'm not sure if I should do it. From what I've read here it's seems to be a fairly nasty virus and I wouldn't want to make it worse. Any suggestions?

Also,what does this virus actually do to your computer?

Thanks for any help
