All I can do is add to what others have said.  Don't run it.  Paypal would 
never do this because if they did, they would be alienating their smarter 
(I.E. non-windows running) customers. <g>  They would, at the very least, 
give you a good reason for your account being deactivated and point you to 
an address on their site where you would be able to rectify the 
problem.  If you scan the file with a virus scanning program, you will 
probably find out something interesting.  Maybe not though.  Let us know if 
you do.
