  1. Has anyone else been getting these?

    Yesturday I got 3, and it's been going on for the past day.

    Random email addresses send me something saying "if you want to feel the love, open the attached file"

    Well, I scanned it, no viruses, but it doesnt work.. Getting kinda annoying now... :mad:

    Anyone getting these?

    I was really hoping for some p0rn at least :( :p

  2. NEVER open an e-mail with that subject!

    Yeah, could be that "I Love You" virus.... It may not register, some viruses don't. Could be a new form of the "I Love You" virus, and the virus companies haven't recognized it yet...

    Ditto. Also, never open ANY unknown attachments. Even if it's not a virus, it could be a spyware carrier. Spyware is junk that is installed on your computer without you knowing about it (often installed by a cute little game that you play for 5 minutes and delete), and typically monitors your internet activity. There's a nifty (and free) little program called Ad-Aware which searches for and removes spyware. First time I ran it, I couldn't believe how much spyware crap was hidden in my computer (including the registry).
