Re: Swen Virus HELP
How did it work out for you Brett? Bloody thing tried the same on our computers and kept sending the same email to try and trick us into opening it. Fortunately we didn't so no probs.
The other latest thing that is doing the rounds are bogus hoax emails from "ANZ", "Westpac/Challenge", "StGeorge" and "PayPal". They are very realistic and i had to do a lot of checking to ensure they were a hoax. NO bank sends the request that is contained in those emails.
Just thought you might not be aware of those.
As you found out the hard way, the email from Microsoft is simular as in that they do NOT send emails either. It is up to you to contact them for updates etc.
Sally (the handbrake) has spent a bit of time with a program called "MailWasher". Absolutely brilliant. The only down side is , it originates from New Zealand. Hehehe.
It shows you what emails are on your server before you download them into your email program. You can tick them as friends or block them and send them back where they came from, making them think you do not exist.
We purchased the Pro version and are very happy with it and, NO, we are not part of it, just happy customers.
Apart from that, Happy Putering.
