Here’s a gem from today’s postmaster mail:
Mailer-daemon, You’ve received a postcard!
You have just received a virtual postcard from Aunt Edna!
Uh huh. I know some software projects have enough history to have family trees, but this seems just a bit too unlikely!
Well, see, I don’t have an aunt named Edna, but my grandmother’s name is Edna. I was too curious and clicked the link – only to be infected by a virus :S Never again!
I did the same thing. How do I get rid of the virus?
At this point, the best thing is to get a virus scanner, like F-Secure or Norton Anti-Virus.
(Or, in the absolute worst case, copy all your documents, images, email, etc. to an external disk, reformat the hard drive and reinstall Windows.)
I activated the Norton Anti-Virus and it doesn’t get rid of the virus. I installed QURB which puts all of the garbage emails in quararantine so that I can approve the mail that I want and one click gets rid of the rest. My mail program Outlook is still running very slow so I have not eliminated the entire problem and I am still looking for a solution. My husband was curious and slicked on the attachment.
