It is most likely that the virus was *not* sent by Harry:

* Most viruses are sent from other addresses and people than specified.
* Harry was in Denmark when that virus was sent, meaning that his computer
was turned off.
* If Harry's name was included, that's wrong too: Harry's name isn't
mentioned in the "from" field in ordinary mails, only his e-mail address.
* Harry's e-mail address was wrong.
