I think these emails are less about a virus and more about the ad. Run every anti-virus program you have, and after you have been running the computer like normal for an hour, hit control-alt-delete and click the 'Processes" tab at the top. Do a google search for each image name and see if they should be running. Next go to 'Set program access and defaults' and click 'Change or Remove Programs' Let it oad and take a look through that and look for anything that you don't recgonize. Do a google search on that program and see what it is. If it's bad, or you don't need it, get rid of it. This is by far the best way to get rid of programs. Last go to the start menu and click 'Run' and type msconfig.exe into it. Click on the upper tap that says 'startup' Look in that list for any programs that shouldn't be starting up or that you don't recgonize. Supposedely you can prevent them from starting up, but I've never had any luck doing that. If something bad shows up on that list, then you may as well take it into a shop to get fixed. It could be a big deal if you bank or buy online. This is all for Windows XP.
