Hang when getting virus-mail
« on: October 31, 2004, 01:33:54 PM »
Haven't gotten any mail with virus for a while (good ISP), but today I got one AND when my mail program should receive it everything locks up (the mail program didn't lock up, but somethig underneath, IE wouldn't start either, and after I tried that the whole system did lock up completly).

I received one, noticed that avast enters the 'fuzzy' mode (High protection, high security levels) but, after some seconds, everything went fine. No browser troubles, I posted the virus information here: http://forum.avast.com/index.php?board=9;action=display;threadid=8225

Better than my ISP, Spamihilator blocks everything before downloading  8)
