Hello,

I am using another computer far from home and am not able to post all technical information, but such info can be found in my prior posts. I´m using Windows XP (in Portugues - Brazil) on an ASUS board.

I received an email with 3 photos attached from a close friend yesterday. When I clicked on "download all", the download I received was called "visualizar.exe" (which means "view.exe" in English). It was very late, and I was already half asleep, and thus made the mistake of clicking before thinking.

RESULT: the icon of the downloaded material disappeared, leaving no trace of anything in the PC.

Next, I contacted the friend who had sent me the photos and discovered that he had sent me nothing. So, suspicious, I ran a full scan with my fully updated AVIRA, which found nothing in my PC. So, I did a bit of research and discovered that this type of problem customarilly is a Trojan, is sent by way of what appears to be a "cloned" email address, is quite common and also potentially quite harmfull.

Please help me try to find it and remove it.

ALSO, I WOULD LIKE TO FORWARD THE ORIGINAL EMAIL WITH THE DANGEROUS LINKS FOR YOUR ANALYSIS, BUT NEED YOUR AUTHORIZATION BEFORE DOING SO, DUE TO THE POTENTIAL DANGERS TO YOUR COMPUTERS...

Thank you.
