The way email is routed, it's sometimes hard to guarantee the message actually came from that IP address. However, I would advise that you forward the original message as an attachment (without the virus obviously) to Comcast for further analysis. Sadly, many windows machines are infected with Trojans/Worms/etc that repeatedly send out false emails with viruses like this without the owner's knowledge.
