    Good evening; :)

    All of a sudden I'm getting a bunch of mail w/ infected attachments, mostly in my bulk folder, account 2 yahoo. I've noticed also that the majority are from either Yahoo or Hotmail. What would be the best route to go on this ? Please send instructions. Thanks very much. (y)

    Actually there isn't anything other you can do but change your email address..I would say that one of your contacts have been infected and they have picked up your email address from the infected system..Most of those senders addresses are spoofed anyway so don't bother trying to track it down, but watch closely what you are opening.
