The patch is called Linux.
Well how are they sending him the code?
Web Page redirection, batch file or what....

First, have him check if there are any patches from Microsoft that he hasn't installed that might make a difference, such as from http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com . If he's on Windows 95 and it still happens, it might be worth upgrading to 98 (Second edition), because it is somewhat improved but isn't a major transition, like going to NT.
How is the person sending this code? ICQ? Email? Webpage? What? Has your friend tried using any ignore-features on ICQ/AIM/Yahoo IM to block it?

it happens on windows up to and including 2nd edition. I may be wrong but i don't think there is a patch for it. Its been fixed in win2k.
how dumb is your friend to keep falling for the same trick..."dam! happens every time i click on this link"
