I have XP.
Only Zone ALert in the machine.
A week ago, I received a group addressed email which I opened through Micro-SOft Express.
I responded to the sender to please not bombard me with further emails.
I then deleted all of these new addresses which appeared within my address book.
I also ran the anti spyware/virus routine.
I received a Trojan spyware, which was put into quarantee for several days.
Initially this spywarae/virus could not be changed into something safe to quarantee.
so said the notice.
a day later, it had been successfully quaranteed and a day alter still, I finally deleted it.
after deleting it , and to be safe, I ran cyber-scrub erase program for all recent deleted files.
Since then, my anti-virus section of my updates, does not function at all.
the red notice and whatnot.
I am at sea over this chain of events.
I am still scratching my head as to how I got onto a list of multiple addresses in the first place.
ANy and all assistance will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your attention to this matter.
