The standard background/email antimalware scanners are not as good as an "on demand" scan made on a saved file. Good general advice is to NEVER open attachment while it's still in the mail.. Save it to your desktop first, scan it with a good, CURRENT antivirus/antispyware program, then open it if you choose. Did you do that?
A little more information about your computer would sure help.. Which operating system? What was the file extension of the attachment? What email client do you use? (Are you using a webmail client from Internet Explorer, or an offline client like Outlook Express or MS Outlook?) Which antivirus and antispyware scanners did you use?
At this point, if you're using a webmail type, have you tried deleting all files from the Internet Explorer/Internet Options/(Browsing History)Temporary Internet Files section?
Hope this helps.
can anybody give me any information in regards to this... I recieved an email from a mate today it had an attachment on it.. when opened it showed the endearing pic and in my nero photo it showed next so i went throuh them.. it seems every thing I looked at or went on to appeared in the next image as well as other images that were not famillar to me. and has continued to do so all day... Why would this happen.. Do I have a keylogger in my system... I do have good security installed on my system.. and have ran scans ... nothing has shown up on any of them...It just seems as if every movement I make on the net is recorded and I can view bits of it throught open this email image... Reaaly puzzeled here,... I dont know to much about computer stuff ... Thanks for all ur help guys
