I recently had several issues with my PC and trojains. After downloading and using hjack this and other programs recommended here, I thought everything was cleared up.

Not long after that I came a cross Incredimail, thought it would be fun to try, and downloaded it. Not long after that, I started having major issues with my laptop to the point where I had to refomat and start over. Before the biggest issue started (PC unable to boot due to not being able to locate critical files) I did a Norton scan and it found over 1200 at risk files(I do these scans 1/wk)! Most of which were adware. I deleted all but 2 files and had to quarantine those. :thumbsup:

Is incredimail a safe program? Is it adware? Microsoft didn't seem to have anything bad to say about it(http://search.microsoft.com/search/results.aspx?st=b&na=88&View=en-us&qu=incredimail). Any thoughts or input on this program? I would like to use it or something like it. :flowers:

Hello Colleen,
I use Incredimail myself. I really like the letter styles and the e-mail notifiers. I am not sure that all of the adware you had was caused by Incredimail or not. Some Anti-Virus applications consider Incredimail to be spyware. That is because of the link you send out when you send an e-mail. That comes with the free version of Incredimail. If you have the paid version you don't send out a link to their website. Was any of the files that your AV cleaned were Incredimail related? What were the files that it quarantined? Did you surf the web for letter backgrounds to use with your Incredimail? Some of the sites that offer letters can be pretty iffy. I have d/l some bad things when getting letters from websites.

Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.
