This error has got nothing to do with your PHP scripts - it's what
happens when an external machine tries to infect you with NIMDA (or Code
Red - can't remember which...). You don't have to worry about this
because this is a IIS virus and apache is completely immune to it since
apache doesn't have the file it is trying to infect (hence "file does
not exist").
