Can anyone tell me about the swen virus, I have been getting bogus microsoft sercurity patch emails, I have all of the latest updates already, but the problem is when the first email arived I clicked on a link to the microsoft website not knowing it was bogus would this have infected my computer? McAfee scan has found nothing.

If McAfee (updated I trust) says you are clear then sleep tight.

Yes I agree, I've used McAfee since I first started browsing the net, and nothing has got past it. I received a Trojan today somehow and it cleaned up nicely.
The updates are regular too, so if you've checked for viruses I think you'll be ok.

I tried to look up [email protected] on McAfee list and it isn`t on there, does McAfee reconise this worm? can anyone explain further?
