VB or DOS infected ? or ?...

Hi, Any trouble with my system I wonder...
I got an Email with a line of code to click on, which I did, & my PC went ' FATAL ERROR OO28 ', which I think means a driver, not sure though. What I'm concerned about is if someone has access to my PC?. Can they do this & that without my knowledge?.
I ran 'Scan Disk'.....no probs there.
I also deleted ALL tempory files, just in case.
ANY help or comments would be very much appreciated.....I still have the Email, complete with the code if anybody wants it(I doubt it).
The system seems to be working fine.

Delete the email.

Scan for a virus.

You should scan your system with adaware, you can download a free trial or buy a proffessional version and its pretty good. It scans your system for 'Spyware' and 'Aggressive advertising' programs, wich pop up lots of crappy adverts and track your internet site vistis and stuff, Chances are you probably have lots of these programs running in hte background without even knowing it.

visit click here or search on google for Adaware.
