Mark,

I just got a Norton virus warning while reading an email from mharris. The
email was disguised to look like a message from mharris. Since I had
updated Norton a few days ago, I assume that Norton detected it immediately.
I deleted the email at once and then rebooted the computer using Goback, a
program that restores the entire drive to a previous state, in this case one
hour ago. The email is gone, even from my deleted emails folder.

Do you think I succeeded in getting rid of the problem, or do you think I
still have to go through all the steps in the link you sent?
