virus in email w/ subject "shtyle"

Post by cherzal on Sat 12 Jun 2010, 11:41 pm

Has anyone had a problem with this? I opened the email from a known contact. The next day she sent another email telling everyone to NOT open it. Too late. I only had problems with my computer when i tried to restart it. Its a mess. I was abe to open it in safemode yesterday but cant get any of my files off of it.

  • Please do not ask for help elsewhere (in this site or other sites). Doing so can result in system changes, which may not show up in the logs you post.
