Hi People, Today I received an email from someone called Sean which contained a virus. My Virus checker - Norton Antivirus was out of date (by 3 days) and didn't pick it up. Subsequently all those in my address book will have gotten at least a couple of emails from my address. Some ISP's have returned some emails with their virus scanning but a lot will have gotten through.
Firstly if you have an email titles" I love you", "You are so sweet" or something along those lines, dont open it. Some even have no sender in the 'To' feild. The email contains files with a .scr and .exe file type.
If your Virus scanner hasn't picked it up then please don't open it, and delete the email right away. Also make sure it doesn't just go to the deleted folder.
Here is a link to a page which explains how to remove the virus.
If anyone has questions I have succesfully removed the virus from my computer and can help other do so.
Sorry for this mess!!
