    At about :)05 AM EST) today, I opened an email from "GreenTeaNews" that made
    it past MSN's high level virus screen that purported to show "Oprah Switches
    to Green Tea". It contained a spam message purportedly from someone hawking
    collectible automobiles, which I then sent to the Junk file. But - after
    that message I have been unable to read any of my incoming emails - a MS
    message flashes the header data is unreadable and no message or any info at
    all appears in the text block. So I can't see any incoming mail and I don't
    know if it has been destroyed or just rendered unreadable.

    Any ideas how to fix? Very urgent istuation as I receive many business
    related emails each day. Ed Jaeckel or 203-554-1546
    since I may not be able to read the replies. Thanx.

    You've just posted your real, unmunged email address and your phone
    number on Usenet where thousands of people - some of whom are Not Very
    Nice - will get it. I've snipped the information, but Google Groups is

    What antivirus do you have installed? If you don't have a full-featured
    av with an active subscription and updated definitions - on your hard
    drive, never mind about MSN's email server's protection - then start by
    scanning with either Sysclean or Dave Lipman's Multi-AV. Follow up with
    scanning for non-viral malware. You will find instructions for Sysclean
    and the malware removal here:


    And here is a link for Multi-AV:

    When you get everything cleaned up, practice "Safe Hex":

    If all of this seems too difficult - and there is no shame in admitting
    that this isn't your cup of tea - have a professional come in and fix
    your computer.
