I think that I may have donwloaded a virus.
I recieved an e-mail from MS Corporation Public Assistance with a "Newest Security Upgrade". I installed it as it came from Microsoft. After I installed it my Norton virus started to scan outgoing mail, which I did not send. I have since received 4 e-mails from Mail Delivery System saying that mail could not be delivered to everyone all the addresses in my mailbox. mt Norton has also stopped working.

HELP!!!!!!

There are numerous threads on this subject - Microsoft does not send out e-mails unless you are a subscriber....:-)
