I was infected by the klez virus - don't open an attachments

Well i can safely say i had a bad day, which cumulated in being infected by the klez virus. I was meaning to single click on the attachment - but old habbits die hard.

I must say its quite a clever virus - it managed to get around the measures i had taken to protect agaist thing just like this (zonealarm and not a microsoft email program). although i’m not certain of that - hopefully it didn’t. but since i don’t know (yet) i hope 2 forewarn u.

and johann - its already to late for forewarn you - seems your infected.

a thousand pardens,
To the optimist, the glass is half full.
To the pessimist, the glass is half empty.
To the IT guy, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

Haha. ‘Microsoft Outlook Express 6.00.2600.0000’ is ‘not a microsoft
email program’?

START -> Settings -> ControlPanel -> Add/Remove -> Uninstall OutlookExpress

I like seeing that you were infected. Now your apologize shows that
you use your brain. If you think a little further you will find that
it doesn’t depend on the software you use though M$ mail prodcuts and
systems makes it extremely difficult to protect oneself.

If you want to use a cool mailer, try one or all of these:
Pegasus, TheBat!, PMMail or Eudora.

Never use HTML email. HTML is for websites and not for email.
