Hi computer gurus,

I'm worried about the following.  I am running Windows 7 premium with service pack 1.  The problem started when I downloaded an app for my iphone that said it would sync my iphone contacts with my google contacts. 

 

Next thing I knew, I saw that my main  email server had sent an email to my gmail account containing a vcf card for my doctor.  Like a fool I opened it in windows contacts.  Then I started to worry.

 

I worried even more when my husband got an email with one of my contacts (vcf) attached.

 

So...can opening a vcf card infect a computer? 

 

Thanks,

Dara
