Yesterday I tried to work on a word pad document and I had no word pad. I checked around and found it in the anti virus quarantine. I tried to download it but every time I did the same thing happened. I have 2 laptops I use but only happened on my newer LENOVO. The ACER works fine.

Could you tell us what Anti Virus you are using?

Could you tell us where the Wordpad Document came from?

And a point of interest: There is a current flood of Viral Loads being carried in apparently harmless Documents sent by eMail
