Discovered Dormant Virus

Hi to you all
Discovered a Dormant Virus in my system and also at work that is set to activate June 1. The Virus is in File sulfnbk.exe
Which I have just deleted. I may of transmited it to the board but I do not know how it is currently moving

Ron, this is a hoax, the file you probably deleted is actually a windows utility used to restore long filenames. I did a little research this morning after getting a frantic phone call from my mother, who was also taken by the hoax.

You can read more about it on the Symantec website.

So if I took Ron's advice and deleted the file then emptied my recycle bin is there anything I can do to recover the file?
