    Unknown virus (maybe)

    I was checking my e-mail when suddenly i saw a e-mail having two attached files: "Nusn.scr" and "crnr_dn_rgt[1].jpg". Then i remember that many virus have the extension of .scr . So does any1 know if this is a virus or not?
    I.N I haven't open the attached files, or save them on the temporary folder and i have search on symantec .

    A new one came it has two attached files again: "pelates.jpg" and "ack.exe". It has the same subject, but it has different e-mail address.

    Sounds like one to me. Have you tried scanning them with heuristics turned on?

    I don't have anti-virus progs installed in my PC. But when i'm going to open the attached files, Windows warn me that they're maybe virus.

    Go to an antivirus vendors website usually the have site scans you can do. I think www.trendmicro.com has one. Why not try that.
