We are all trying to combat this menace so it might be a good idea to let them know they are infected.

if you don't know who they are, i suggest you block and bounce the offending emails.

i also recieved a couple with found.exe or attached to it. Beware of these files.

I didnt know the emails were infected AVG never told me it just delt with them and that was it,im a bit dubious about emailin some one i dont know and saying you got a virus might get a bit mad lol,i dont really want bounce any either cos it might end up somewere else and get passed on again.

if you bounce it only goes back to where it was sent from showing you don't exist. like junk postal mail the the post, i always return to sender.because they have to pay postage, They soon stop bothering me.

Can you set your AVG to inform you when you receive a virus. I think that can be turned on/off. Wont help this time but might help should it happen again.

There could be an option some where to let it tell you i know the Resident scan has a pop up but dont know about email scanner im knew to AVG7
and not found all the bells an whistles yet,i deleted the emails so i cant send/bounce them but i will if i get anymore.
