Notice of an Email Virus

I am feeling that I should cautiously poke my head around a figurative corner, admit that my PC sent out a virus-laden email, and duck back out of sight.
It has been a long time since one of those emails got the better of me.
This one, appearing to be a file attachment from a trusted source, lured me into opening it and unwittingly spreading the problem
In spite of several frustrating hours I can't access my usual email program and can only use a web-based email.  I think that my nearly new PC will need a visit to the local shop.
Since this sort of thing trolls through the address book and sends junk to everyone I've ever emailed, I can only hope that most recipients were quicker on the uptake than I was.


  1. thanks for the warning, but don't worry, it happens to us all at some time or other :-)

  2. I'm sorry this happened to you. I got an email from a friend recently that seemed suspicious, so emailed her to let her know, and I didn't open the attachment that came with the email. Hopefully you'll have your new computer fixed and back to working just fine in the near future.

    Love and hugs ~ FlowerLady

  3. I smelt a rat as it didn't write as you do, so I must have been more awake than I normally am!!! It is one of those things, but annoying that you will have to spend money to put it right.
