When I d/l e-mails this am, I found 3 files with attachments, 2 senders unknown and 1 known and the same sender. When I went to check for the details on the attachments, I was presented in each case with a screen saying: You have chosen to d/l a file from this location
What would you like to do with this file?
I decided not to open and went about business on other e-mails.
When I returned to the unopened e-mails, as soon as I clicked on the first one, I was presented with an AVG warning screen warning of the badtrans virus. I closed the screen and deleted that file.
I consulted Norton's instructions, shut down, started in safe mode, b/u registry, and looked for kernel32.exe in RunOnce. That file was not there, only an icon saying default.
I opened in Windows and looked at remaining attachments. They have extensions like docs.doc.pif.
I scanned with AVG in both safe mode and not. No virus files were reported.
What should I be doing now? Thanks very much indeed.
