Do I have the virus?

I have recieved an e-mail which states -
"This message had an attachment which were found to contain the following virus(es):

File 'Attachment' was infected with virus '[email protected]!enc' (ID 37368)

The infected file(s) were cleaned or removed from the attachment"

The mail is from mail delivery system. I cant work out if this is my antivirus software (panda platinum) doing its job and stopping an e-mail sent to me or if its a mail I've sent being returned. Panda isnt finding anything on my pc when I run a full scan.

I tried this programme (the free one) and it came up with the following 4 viruses:

File C:\WINDOWS\OPTIONS\CABS\WIN98_66.CAB tagged as not-a-virus:Tool.Win32.Reboot. No Action Taken.


File C:\WINDOWS\OPTIONS\CABS\OLS\CSI\USKIT.EXE tagged as not-a-virus:Tool.Win32.Reboot. No Action Taken.


File C:\WINDOWS\OPTIONS\CABS\OLS\AT&T\ATTKIT.EXE tagged as not-a-virus:Tool.Win32.Reboot. No Action Taken.


File C:\Program Files\AOL 9.0\Jiti\Jiti_mm.exe tagged as not-a-virus:Tool.Win32.Reboot. No Action Taken.


Has the programme got rid of the virus, or have I got to do it

Thanks
Fred

Jiggy B,

You are not currently infected with a virus. The Panda Anti-virus suite uses a Proxy E-mail virus checking system so why the message orginates from a mail delivery system suggests that the mail could be a Spam/Virus variant. Some e-mail like this include:

"Your message has been checked for viruses with McAfee....Attactchements OK."

These messages are often fake and when you do open the attatchment you would be infected with a virus. A nasty trick to convince users that the attatchment is clean when infact it is not.

As you have Panda- Panda has simpily cleaned the mail message automatically and no further action is required on your part.

what you have listed are not viruses so take no action.The program you used automatically deletes viruses so you do not have any
