    You have a virus. Go <a href="http://housecall.antivirus.com/">here</a> and run an online virus scan. Once you get this resolved, make sure to always have your antivirus software running and keep the virus definition files up-to-date.

    Oh - and WELCOME TO TSG!
    :D

    You've got a vbs virus.

    Have your computer scanned on line ASAP at <A HREF="http://housecall.antivirus.com/">Trend Micro HouseCall </A>

    Good luck,

    "i was afraid it would be a virus but what can ya do"

    You can get anti-virus software immediately, install it, and update it daily. Some people never get viruses on their computers (myself included). It's very avoidable.

    Before you do anything else with your computer, you have to remove the virus. Depending on which one it is, you may have infected all your friends through e-mail. You may need to contact them to let them know.

    Go here http://www.wilders.org/free_tools.htm and they have programs like Vcleaner, JPG File Recovery and others.

    Never used them so can't help you on it but they do have a forum there also.
