MessageLinda, I empathize with you. My computer got hit this summer by two variations of klez. I had 2 anti-virus programs running and I never opened the attachments. Norton never found either of them, and my AVG found them for 3 days before the "unhooked" both programs. Nothing seemed to fix them. I finally discovered the Panda anti-virus program that erased both viruses. I was so happy since I had given up on my computer and figured I'd just replace it. I downloaded a program that allows me to see my e-mail on the server before I download it to my computer and it disables all attachments. I am now one of the overly cautious. Good luck in getting your computer cleaned.
