The virus arrived today at 08.05, as I've only received mail from CV today, could it have come from there, if not, how?
The info from AVG is long & very specific, for example, "Return path. mailer-daemon @ [my email address], received from me wanadoo net [local host] by mwin 3001 by mewin 3001 freeserve.com, recd from 192 168 120 11 unknown" etc, etc, could the techies among you decypher this gobbledygook please, & tell me how I did get it.

Thanks, Maurice.
Maurice,
Sorry i might be a bit late but i thought just to let you know kinda thing.

I know what you mean, you gotta be careful, dont open any email(attachments specially) from anyone you dont know. Even then you gotta becareful. And when it has something like~
"Return path. mailer-daemon @ [my email address], received from me wanadoo net [local host] by mwin 3001 by mewin 3001 freeserve.com, recd from 192 168 120 11 unknown" etc, etc,
It might mean that you 'supposedly' sent a email to some and getting it back, but it might be the virus/trojan trying to trick you(i could be wrong tho)

As for AVG, thats one bad thing thats anoying and a real hassle, the virus 'vault', i dont mean to alarm you but why its a 'vault' it says its safe and not effecting your comp, but really there not prof(sp) that it infact is. The best way i found is to get rid off your comp, for good(hopefully) is to delete it off the virus vault and comp. Sometimes you may not, but it deppens on the trojan/virus etc.
(i did a screenscap for you)
eg:


Hope that helps and you get it all sorted out.


p.s i miss Seti too

I am assured by that techie that once in the AVG vault, it cannot do harm, & deleting items from there is OK, what leads you to doubt the guy, who is around 40, & very experienced in all things IT, running that business for many years now? Previously, regarding previous viruses I have had several members tell me, categorically that the vault is safe, & deleting from there is also
