"Hello,This is a WinXP patch
I hope you would enjoy it. "
(paperclip: PASSSIGN.HTM, PASSSIGN.EXE)

Eh. How old are these kids anyway? You should forge the From header (and perhaps the Reply-to header while you're at it) to point to Microsoft.com. Then make the text something like

"This patch closes the security hole known as Internal Stack Buffer Overflow in Windows XP, Windows ME and Windows 98. To install, simply click on the attached file. Microsoft will not be responsible for any worms or viruses transmitted by unpatched versions of Windows XP, WIndows ME and Windows 98 after this patch is made available."
