I have found out that by putting my email address on this thread, my PC has become infected by the MyDoom worm.

If anyone else has had this problem and knows how to fix it I would appreciate any advice.

Try this Gingerbear - can't do links so you will jjust have to put it in your address bar yourself.
I think it has a removal tool for the my doom virus. HTH

In future, gingerbear (and anyone else reading) when you put your email address on, write "at" insetad of using the symbol. Apparently there is software out there that trawls through the internet looking for an "at" symbol in order to use the address that goes with it.

So if you put eg name at hotmail dot com it won't be picked up.

Ah!! thanks for the tip janH. I think it is safer to CAT in future.
