OK, I didn't believe that original post was on purpose, so I didn't respond.

But WOW stands for "Windows on Windows" and is the NT (now 2k and XP)
subsystem for running 16 bit Windows applications.

Yeah, I have that too.  It's part of Windows, and is no more dangerous
than sulfnbk.exe.  Just take some deep breaths, try to remain calm, and
everything will be ok.

Achtung! Dies ist kein Spam! Ich möchte Sie darauf hinweisen, dass sich
eben ein programm namens "wowexec.exe" sich im Speicher meines PCs
befand. Möglicherweise war das ein Wurm, der eine Datei mit einer
Doppelendung (zum Beispiel .txt.exe) zu Ihnen geschickt hat. Ich bitte
Sie daher alle Mails, die solch eine Datei beinhalten, zu löschen! Wenn
Sie eine Email mit einem Attachment von mir erhalten haben und sich
nicht sicher sind, so schicken Sie bitte das Attachment zu mir. Ich kann
Ihnen dann weiterhelfen!

*BITTE NICHT AUSFÜHREN!!! *

MfG,
  Roland Häder

this kind of attachment! If you have received an email with an
