I just thought I should let you all know that there is another email virus floating around, luckly it was wiped before it even opened by my anti-virus software. The email came saying the sender was [email]dispatch@McAfee.com[/email] with the subject line of Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeey(dead give away)

This email contained the W32.Hawawi.Worm

Don't ask me what it does I don't know and was fortunate enough to not find out.

Cya all later!

:D :D :D

Im not worried beccause my e mail provider has an option to either allow or disallow e mail attachments. And since i dont have av installed on my computer i just ignore any e mail i get from either norton and mcafee. So any attachments even if sent from a trusted source wont open.

First of all, I got this a while back, but thankfully Norton(:o) got it and chewed it up. But my mom, unfortunately, opened the attachment and then the send box popped up about 50 times and we dont know what happened, but my dad fixed that. :)
