    Slammed With Viruses Lately

    Anyone else getting slammed with viruses lately? Everyday I open Outlook and I have at least 5 e-mails that try to automatically run something when I view them. Usually attached to the e-mail is a HTML file and another file that Zone Alarm renames.

    Any idea what this virus is? Has anyone else been receiving this as much as I am?

    Just a note: Jared_c is the name of the AO member asking the question.

    Klez is the name of the Virus.

    Yea.. I think that's the one. Over the past couple weeks I have been getting so many copies of this in my mailbox. It's getting annoying. I think I have received more of these than any others from the past.

    I did say Outlook. Of course I am fully patched! What kind of question is that!

    Thanks everyone for the replies.

    Well yesterday, my Gateway bounced over 200. Today I'm up to 38 (and counting).
