There is some kind of scam going on, and I wannted to alert you all to this..I don't understand what has happened to be honest , but a week ago, I got 2 emails from people I don't know telling me there was a card for me at a Hallmark website. I tried to get them, but it wouldn't work. I went into the aol directory, and these 2 people were listed as being members..Whatever it was, I changed my password..I just went to check some sent mail. and there were about 10 emails listed, as sent to people I have no idea who the heck they are, and the subjest matter pertains to rx's.....when I opened one I supposedly sent, there was the "You have a card," go to Hallmark gibberish...So somthing is fishy,...

Many people Do send e-cards so I wouold not simply delte them. Heck, I send lots of them! What you have Gaile is 'spyware' and it sends your personal information which ranges from just your name to your address book, and even address and CC Numbers if you have them stored somewhere on your computer. A good spyware program will get rid of it. This is a good reminder to never place information on your computer that will hurt you if someone were to tap into your computer. I have seen some of these things like e-mail supposedly being from me but with my program that is all they have ever been able to get.
Download "Spyware Blaster" and install it. Free and works well. Spyware Blaster
Also look under your "Program Files" and see if there is an item called "Ezula", it is spyware. Go to the control panel and open "Add/ Remove Programs" and see if it there and remove ezula.
There is more to do if you find "ezula", e-mail me and I'll tell you the rest.

I also received this E-mail. Since I didn't recognize the sender I deleted it. A similar thing happened to my DH about a year ago. When it was opened it was a "Trojan Horse" program which lets someone else use your E-mail account to send out other E-mail. AOL sent us a TOS (Terms of Service) notice that we were sending Bulk Mail! We quickly notified AOL (Keyword: TOS reports) and changed our passwords on all our accounts. I'm surprised that they didn't notify you, too.

I have a virus and spam filter (Postini) provided by my cable company, to check incoming and outgoing email. I go there and check what they have taken. Lately there have been a lot of virus infected mails taken out. Despite the fact that I have this service virus still gets in through downloaded files. This morning when I booted up I got the blue screen twice. I decided to run my virus scan. It is still running but right away it found 4 infected files. No doubt that was what caused my blue screens. This free virus scan that I have is the best one I have ever had. If anyone needs a virus scanner the addy is www.grisoft.com They recently upgraded the system so I went there yesterday and downloaded the new version.
