I was at a friend's house today working on his pc. It previously had multiple problems, but is now cleaned up. I took screen shots of the startup applications to get some advice from newsgroups concerning them. I pasted the screen shots into Wordpad .rtf files, and then attached those to email to my home pc. The idea being that I could work it from my place tonite. When I attempted to send the email, McAfee alerted that there was a worm in the attachments. I deleted the outgoing email, and ran a followup scan on the hard drive. McAfee gave no problem indication. I then went back to the attachments, and did a cut and paste job into email text windows, and I was able to send them that way with no problem. Questions: 1. why were we getting an alert on the outgoing attachments, when a hard drive scan didn't show any problem? 2. How do I correct the problem?
