Q

Removing an e-mail virus

I received a virus (worm type w32.badtrabs.13312@mm.), and now when I download e-mail from the local ISP server, the e-mails are automatically returned to the sender with the corrupt virus attachment. How can I resolve this problem?


Follow the instructions for removal found at http://www.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.badtrans.13312@mm.html.
