E-Mail Blitzed By A Virus.

Last Friday my email was hit by a virus. Quite a few emails were coming in supposedly from people in my address book. They are still arriving but not from the actual senders. If you receive any emails from people you know, and it has just a one-line blue website address, DO NOT double click it. If you do, your equipment will die and then re-boot, and your Outlook Express thereafter will just sit on screen and do nothing - friendly virus creators out there, eh! (Haven't they got something better to do?)
Luckily, my address book is still intact, but my trusty local PC wizard had to bin all of my emails as, of course, any one of them could have contained this virus, we did a virus sweep and found 6, and I had to start all over again. Luckily, all the emails and photos for the April fanzine had been saved and added into the pages.
