Do you want to give a bit more detail..?

Please do.

What Anti Virus program are you running.

How did you know you have this virus, receiving email, installing a program etc...

I don't know much more than the name, a friend of mine has that virus and doesn't know how to get rid of it.

Theres no reference to that name in any virus database.

Nor on Google.........

There are references to JOKE - PEN and VIRUS

I think what your freind has is a prank .exe file, harmless but annoying.

However some can be destructive but not a virus as such.

Are you sure "Joke-Pen Virus" is what it is called?
