Hi, I'm new.
After 3 weeks I am still getting 5 email viruses per day from "Microsoft". I of course know not to open the attachments, and I delete as well as block the sender. My wife only got a few the first few days after the virus hit the internet. I am virus free, (Norton AV) but these daily attacks are getting annoying. And at the risk of sounding paranoid, am I under some sort of personal attack or is this happening to others too?
Thanks in advance for any help.

Above is a link about the virus I believe you are griping about.

Is your email address on web pages? Do you have a lot of people who may have your address in their address books? The more "known" your email address is, the more likely you are to get these constantly from other infected computers. Your wife may only have a few contacts, that finally disenfected their computers.

Also if you use the newgroups, your email is picked up from there.
