Paul,

I recommend a virus scan using up-to-date antivirus software, as it's possible (even likely?) that the message was sent by a virus that is on your computer and has access to your address book.? If that's the case, chances are the same message was sent to others in your address book as well, and future messages might be sent as well.

Anyone who received the message and unsuspectingly clicked on the link should do virus scan as well, especially if they actually executed the setup.exe program.

Another other possibility is that the message was faked as having been from your account and actually sent from another machine.? However, that seems less likely, since in such cases, there's not usually a clear relationship between the recipient and the purported sender, whereas in this case there is.

I'm not a computer expert, so my apologies if anyone who knows more about these things thinks I'm being alarmist.

?? Best,
?? Grant

Hi All,

I did not send this setup.exe link. Not sure how this was sent out? Sorry for the inconvenience.
