    Hi, I have a friend of mine who sent out an email this morning to a group of people and I have received the same email (up to this point) 12 times today. I have another friend of mine who received the same email and she said she has received the same number of messages. Is there something I need to check on his computer to find out what the problem might be? I will be talkiing to him later to find out what kind of problem he might be having and I will probably be working with his wife to determine the problem. I will have her run HJT and spybot S & D and Adaware to find out if any of those have a problem. But is there anything specific that I should be looking for. I have the latest Norton's av definitions (just checked this morning) and I am not being told that there is a virus in these messages when they show up.

    He did send out a file and all that is in the file is a powerpoint presentation.

    Could you help me out with this?

    Thank You

    It could just as easily be the server as his computer. I'm receiving e-mails from this forum for post that were made two days ago, and also for post that have never been made :rolleyes:

    We need more information about his computer in order to fix it (if it needs fixing). 9 out of 10 times its the servers fault. There has been a LOT of bad viruses lately and e-mail servers have been hit very hard :( I kind of feel sorry for them :p

    OK, Thank You. I will talk to him in the morning and find out more. I will let him know that you were saying it might be the email server and not his computer. Thank you for your help and I will get back on here after I talk with him in the morning.

    Thank You
