    I reveived two emails this morning that appeared to be from MS.

    One had a "bodtzs.exe" and said something about mail not being delivered to an aol address.

    One looked like it was a security patch from MS. I have any auto updates turned off. It had a "installation18.exe with it.

    I shredded both swith Spybot.

    Anybody else received anything like this?

    Thanks guys. I didn't open anything and got rid of it. I guess AVG isn't set to detect it and it got past roadrunner.

    I just found three new updates on the AVG site and installed them.

    By shredding the two emails I received by using Spybots shredder tool did I do the right thing and is this a recommended procedure? I also ran Housecall and showed clear.

    You are fine Deke as you said you didn't open the attachments and I'd say using the shredder was a good move.
