  • Possible Computer Virus

    An hour ago I opened an attachment in an email from Larry B. At least it said it was from him, and the title read: "TRAIN SET- Click Above". The "Click Above" part didn't make any sense to me, and I shouldn't have opened it. Now I can't open or delete any emails because the bar showing it opening just keeps repeating.

    Any ideas on how to fix this? Thanks

      I don't know of any. This is a used computer I bought on ebay about 4 years ago, and it was doing fine until this problem. I just tried it again, and Hotmail is back to normal, so maybe it was a fault with OUTLOOK.

        Tom, I haven't had to install any virus software. It takes care of itself, like a conservative does

        Tom, here's an old trick from an old fart, if you're not sure about any email, click on it's box and then click on 'block'. This will not delete the email but will ask you if you want to block this email. When that happens, you see the address from where this email was generated. That address will tell whether it's legit or not. If you just delete it, you won't see that address. Most all my spam comes into my junk box but sometimes it does come into my 'in' box and that is how I handle something that doesn't look kosher.

        Once someone gets into your email addresses, they can come back and mentally rape you bigtime just by using someone's first name. I have friends names used but when another actual address is used, it automatically goes into my junk file. I know the name but not the address, that tells me a spammer got into a friends email system and then trying to get into mine also and everyone else's in their address file.

        Hope this helps, if not, I'm afraid though your email might be locked up now.

          Good Camera, Which one?
          by Terry, NJ
          I have had it! This Kodak camera and the "Easy Share" program has burned me up one time too many. The pictures are good, but this "Easy Share" system is not. I take the pic, then try to load the pic to transfer it to VFF and it's not ready! It's like going to a restaurant as waiting to be served, and waiting, and waiting! I don't know how to get it to accept my pics immediately...

          A Slight Delay in Making New Voltage Regulators
          by Tom Wesenberg
          When I started making voltage regulators years ago, I bought my transistors from the local electronics surplus store. I bought all 15 Motorola transistors that they had, and they worked fine. I then found a guy on ebay that had a box of 200 ON brand, so I bought his, and they worked fine. Now I'm down to just a few left, and I couldn't find the ones I wanted from an American supplier, so I ordered...

          Title Follow Up
          by Roadster Rich
          About a month ago I posted about my 30 Town Sedan that was registered in Vermont up to 1991 but never had a title (VT does not issue for cars over 15 years old). I sold to a friends dad in Michigan. We could not find an actual copy of the registration (plates had the stickers on) and VT just dismissed me stating they no longer keep anything older than 2004.

          I am happy to say that the...

          USPS tracking.
          by Dennis
          Has anybody else had this problem? I bought an item on ebay Wednesday last week, that's a week ago. I live about an hour north of San Diego which is where the item was bought from. I've been watching the tracking shaking my head at how those idiots operate. It jumps around to a couple locations in San Diego county and then goes to Anaheim about 30 minutes north of me. Then all of a sudden it...

          A word of caution ordering from Weldingsupply.com
          by Mickey
          I ordered an 11 pound spool of wire from them about a month ago ($100) but didn't use right away. When I opened it the spool was broken. I called them but because it had been so long they would only turn it over to UPS to see if they would make good on. I then ordered another roll (another $100) and it came in about 15 minutes ago and the spool on it is also broken. I immediately called Welding Supply...
