Keep receiving same email

Specs: WIN XP Home, Pentium III, 512 MB

Keep receiving two emails with attachements over and over again. Always with the same date and the same time. Email address already filtered out, still coming in. Att. are called 'from Doreen' and 'George'. The initial email came from a yahoo.co.uk address, normally fine.

Hi,

Do you have Outlook Express setup to leave a copy of email messages on your ISP server. If so, when you delete the e-mail from your Outlook Express in box, next time you go to download e-mail OE will "kindly" download that message again for you.

Adjust these settings so no copy is kept and then it should be deleted off your ISP servers.

OE
Tools
Select the e-mail account
Properties
Advanced tab, down near the bottom is the option to leave on your ISP sever.

Use a web site such as http://www.mail2web.com to access your ISP server and delete the message

I see you've been searching for sober and sobig....if you think those are the problems try this free
On-line Spyware Scan
and remove all it finds. This scan finds things that other spyware progs miss, oh, and it doesn't give you false negatives that other scan places do in order to sell you their product. It's legit.

Hopefully my advice will help you...Please post back with your results....thanks
