It sounds like a new virus is making the rounds. Importantly, Microsoft does not yet have a patch for it. So, please take the following actions to help avoid getting the virus:

1) Use an alternate Internet browser (such as Firefox or Mozilla) until Microsoft has a patch for Internet Explorer.

2) If you have a managed computer and cannot install another browser, disable ActiveX in Internet Explorer.

3) In the mean time, be careful! Don't click items in HTML emails unless you know where the link goes, and don't click unknown links when using Internet Explorer.

PS: Here's how to disable ActiveX in Internet Explorer. Sorry I didn't include the how-to on that!

Here are the instructions.

Good luck.

Best,
Chris

"Use an alternate Internet browser (such as Firefox or Mozilla) until Microsoft has a patch for Internet Explorer."

Better advice: When Microsoft releases an IE patch, don't switch back.
