Virus help please

The family computer was infected by the plan columbia virus, a version of the loveletter/VBS. I cleaned it off my PC fine, but we have many elderly family members in our addressbook who were sent the virus too. Is there a program I can direct them to that will automatically search out and destroy this virus?

There's a removal tool, and instructions, on this page:

(near the bottom).

Note that I haven't tried this myself. YMMV.
