  5. Hey,
    I got the same problem! Except it was from my own domain. *confused* It was from ~snip~, which I now know it's definitely NOT an e-mail address created under my domain. @_@
    Except I was being stupid, and I downloaded to stupid attachment.

    My internet and firewalls were all disabled. >____<

    And that happened on my main account.

    Do you guys know how to fix that problem? I'm not very smart when it comes to fixing infected computers. :(

    Err, LoL, change the "to" to "THE". XD

    And I'm using the guest computer, since my own computer's infected.

    Thanks!

    Without knowing more, the only suggestion that I have is you could try following the comprehensive steps found in General Cleaning. The steps mentioned use software that ought to be part of your security, as an absolute minimum. Once your system is clean, please don’t hesitate to ask further about using these and other security software to protect your computer.

    Cheers :D
     
  8. Ahh, thanks. :] But unfortunately, I only got my main computer a few days ago, and I didn't have the time to install the anti-spyware software. >__< I only have the Norton Anti-Virus software on the new computer, and that wouldn't work as well. :[
