No, it's actually one of the older, less sophisticated strains (Mr. Happy
is probably one of the very first email viruses even before Ms. Melissa).
It just sends a copy to whoever you are send email to.

If you open it, all you see is a cheesy fireworks display. (Yes, I did
open it ... email viruses weren't common and I didn't know then :)

Removal is very simple. I think you delete a couple of files in the

documented on the web.
