Variant:Numgame.A

It is written to spread to all addresses found in Outlook's Contacts folder. It sends email messages that look as follows:

Subject:Are you [User's name] my valentine?
Body:
 Hi [User's name] my valentine, remember me? I ain't seen
you in ages! Anyway, check-out and play the attached
guess-the-number-game to guess who I am. See you soon,
bye-bye!

Numgame searches in particular folders and tries to delete several files from the infected computer and from all network drives.
