Hey all,

Weren't sure where to post..

But someone's sent me a .doc over hotmail, and it's picked it up as avirus.. and i know for a fact that it isn't! :( Anyone know of away to bypass their damn virus checker?

This is parts of cswk i've got to hand in i'd done on his pc and he can't send again as he's now left the country!

Any ideas? :(

Name of Filechem.docVirus Scan Result
Unknown virus scanner failure Virus FoundNote: There is no cure available for the virus on the file chem.doc

It is not possible to download files from Hotmail that contain incurable viruses. Contact the originator of the file, inform them that the file contains a virus, and ask them to send a virus-free version of the file.

It's a silly bug. Co-worker dealt with it same way Ming suggested. I just synched up Outlook 2003 with hottie - Norton scans the emails on their way in.

You can't do anything if hotmail says there's a virus. Can't download nor forward. The only thing you can try is to close mail and open it again and hope that it'll allow you to download the file the 2nd time... or 3rd.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
