    Sounds like you have Windows XP.

    Turn off System Restore. (Right-click on My Computer, Properties, System Restore Tab. Check the box.

    Scan your system using the latest signature files for your antivirus software. Reboot, then re-enable System Restore.

    It's possible that you are getting the email every day. I used to get the same e-mail up to 30 times a day at its worst.
