This is further information on a previous query. I now have the offending computer in front of me.
We have received a message from the above. When we opened it it read "Please read the document". The attached file was called "document_all.txt.exe". Unfortunately the recipient tried to open this "document" and since then the computer is desperately slow and the Norton Antivirus appears to be corrupted.
Surely this must be a virus? Can we not trust MSN?

How do you know it's come from MSN?? All because it says MSN, that doesn't mean it has!!

Format it.

Format what,please

Bearsy, format the hard drive or take it to a restore point.

I'd take Smegs's advice- considering the file extension is suspect and Norton AV won't work.
