Wondering if someone can help me? I received an email from someone I knew. Inside the body of the email was a link. Since I knew the person, I clicked on the link. Since that time, I cannot use my Hotmail account, but only on the computer I opened the link on. When I click on an email to open it, the whole computer freezes up. This does not happen if I check my email from another computer. My virus protection (CA) was running at the time I clicked the link. I have a PC, use Windows and IE and Hotmail. Later I got an email from the person saying her email had been hacked into. I have tried system restore to go back to time before I opened the email and that does not work. When I run a virus scan, nothing is picked up by the antivirus program. Any ideas for me?
Thanks in advance for any help. I don't really want to change email accounts if I don't have to.
