    Possible Virus

    I just got an "iffy" email which I'm afraid may have had a virus/keystoke recorder, or something on it. I will explain it and see if anyone else may have had a similar circumstance.

    Email is from dannan811 (cant see the full email address) with the subject of darling. The whole email is 125k is file size and when I click on it, it opens a web-browser and has "cid:UK6Kjo5b3tP16" in the address bar. The page itself comes up unretrievable due to an invalid syntax error.

    Is this simply a messed up email, or could there be something else with it? As of yet, no signs of anything acting up on my computer. Just afraid it may be a keystroke recorder or something similar.

    Thanks!

    Thx for the help Dave, I found a utility that should remove it. I'll attempt to do once I'm back home.
