- I received a e-mail from PGBUSI . the other day and thought it was from
Dean and opened the attachment even though Outlook said it may contain a
virus. I knew Dean wouldnt send a virus. Well someone did and Hal has spent
the weekend fixing the Lap-top. Sat. I received a e-mail with and attachment
from Keith and Outlook said it may contain a virus and I deleted it, as Keith
doesnt send jokes or funny attachment to me.
I am letting you all know this because someone may be using our e-mail
addresses to send viruses. And like me, if you think you know who sent it and
open it, you may have troubles like we did.

Yes, I've spent the weekend ridding my computer of a virus. What
happens is it gets onto your hard drive and attaches itself to certain
programs, then when you send an email to someone, it sends another
email with an attachment to the same person. So everyone I emailed
this last week may have had another email with the virus sent to them.
As long as you do not open the attachment you are O.K., but be sure to
delete it...then also delete it from your deleted folder.
Fortunately, it doesn't do any permanent damage to your hard drive, as
long as you use a virus program to eradicate it in good time.
