Thank you for your question, my name is Richard.

It is doubtful your PC is still infected, unless you opened the link again?

If not, check with the contact as they may have opened the original email you sent out when you were first infected.

Also, which Anti Virus software do you have installed?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

VIrgin installed
F-secure


I think i have microsoft security too

Expert:  Richard replied 3 years ago.
ok, you are covered Robert.

Look in your Sent emails on hotmail.

If you do not see any emails again sent out, then the contact received one of the original emails.

If you do see emails in the sent folder from this virus, that were sent today, please let me know.
