hotmail told me a file was virus free....they were wrong....what can i do?
Posted on 2004-10-19
I got a hotmail message and for the first time ever, their virus detection system failed. It told me there was no virus detected but it had one and it happened quick because I was not expecting it since hotmail told me it was not detected. It is located in documents/temp. and was some sort of "worm". It told me to open my AVG to locate and remove it. But, AVG did not find it. I do not know the precise location of this virus. What I gave above was what I quickly saw. I remember seeing the word temp or temporary. While AVG was running a scan, I went to control panel, internet options and deleted the cache.
Would this alone have removed the virus?
why did hotmail miss it?
why does AVG not find it?
how can I find it?
