E-mail Virus Sending Links Issue
Get to know more about why e-mail viruses send links to your system.
If you are a regular user of the Internet, there is a great possibility for the system to get infected. The e-mail virus is a new type of virus which harms your system. The e-mail virus can send some links to your e-mail account. As you click these links, the browser may get redirected to some infected website. This is done to add more infections to the system. It is best not to select or use such links and avoid clicking them. There are some other steps to fix e-mail virus sending links to your system like scanning the system, changing password, installing firewall, etc.
Here are some tips to get rid of the e-mail virus that sends links to your PC:
- Scan the System
- Change Password
- Install Firewall
Scan the System
The initial step is to get rid of the e-mail virus that is sending links to your system. To do this, you need to run the system in safe mode with networking. For this, you need to restart the system and press the 'F8' key at booting time. A number of booting options will be displayed from which you need to select 'reboot the system in safe mode with networking'. You need to then install the antivirus software directly from the website and run it in the system. You can then see that the virus has been removed.
It is possible that your password has been hacked by the e-mail virus. This will then use the e-mail user name and password to send infected links from the system. To fix the issue, you need to clean the hard disk drive of the system first. This can be done by selecting the 'Format' option for the drive or using some disk cleaning software to get the drive cleaned. You need to then change the password of the e-mail account.
You can try adding some good firewall software to the system to avoid any type of attacks on the system. You need to install firewall software from certain websites or you can use Windows firewall for this purpose. You need to then turn on the firewall software. The firewall will monitor both incoming and outgoing traffic of the system. It avoids the e-mail virus from sending links to the system.
