I have just received a strange email and wonder if it could be a hoax or if there is a chance I have been infected by some kind of virus. It was a FWD message from someone I used to be email friends with a long time ago. It had an attachment which I DIDN'T open. The message said they were sorry but as I was in their address book I should read the attachement and delete the file it tells me to. I have heard of these things before and that people end up deleting files that are crucial for windows to work. I have done a virus scan using my AVG and really just want some reassurance that opening the email and not the attachment has not done any harm to my computer. Hope someone can help.
