So..I got an obvious scam e-mail today (something amazon survey gifts etc) and it seems to have escaped the gmail spam filter, and as unbelievable as it sounds, my dog jumped on me when I was about to select it to delete it, and instead of selecting it I opened the e-mail..

When I opened the e-mail a bunch of clickable images loaded..I haven't clicked on any but I don't know if I could still get a virus? What should I do?
Bitdefender Total Security and Malwarebytes found nothing.

If you didn't click on any of the links, don't worry about it.

I haven't no, I merely opened the e-mail which was pretty much all images-links but I haven't clicked on any, the links were something sendmail card...Or something like that..And the image looked like some christmas Amazon survey thing..I've read somewhere sometimes ago that e-mail images can contain malware so that's why I'm worried...And this PC is pretty much my entire life because of my disability.


Edit: This was one of the links 

But I haven't clicked on it
