You do not mention running a Antivirus scan. If you do not have an Antivirus program installed, I suggest that you do so immediatly.

Scarlett,

I have run a full anti virus check using NOD32 - if did not find anytrhing!

I have also just scanned using Panda anti virus software and that also shows clear.

I am begining to suspect a false alarm :thumbsup:
