I have been getting Virus alerts from avg at least 10 times every day for the past couple of days. Mainly described as from Microsoft or MS and named Patch exe or Installation.exe or Pack.exe and similar. Each time AVG picks them up and I delete them. Soon after they are back.
I have read some other threads and have downloaded Stinger, turned off System restore, scaneed and found nothing.
Is there something more I can do? Would appreciate any advice.
Thanks, System Restore back on. Deleted 5 virus since first post, really is getting annoying now. Is someone targeting me on purpose? I guess not since they are sent to customer or client or partner or consumer etc.Arghhh!
Don't open the mails, delete them straight away, Microsoft NEVER send virus alerts or updates of any kind by mail. The more youi open the more infections you will get & the more mails you will receieve. If you havent go to the windows update site and download any Critical updates there are, the other updates are not important.
I too had the problem with the frequency of these false emails. After a while (I set the emails to IGNORE SENDER so I would not receive them from the same source again)the slowed down and now I rarely receive any at all, though 1 or 2 do appear each week.
Try setting the sender to IGNORE SENDER and then see what happens....
Twenty five new ones waiting for me this morning. Its getting beyond a joke. I may have to change my e-mail address. I add each one to the Junk Senders list but they still keep coming. Thanks, anyway, for the previous responses.
