got computer virus from the Email name "HEY"


It's unlikely that a virus from an email cut your Internet connection. Simply opening an email will not give you a virus. You have to open a link or download a file from the email. If you did neither of those things, then you don't have a virus. If you did either of those things, then run an anti-virus program on your computer.
If you have one already, open it up and activate a Full Scan. If you don't have one, use a different computer to download the .exe of Microsoft Security Essentials, transfer the file to your computer, and then install MSE. Run a Full Scan.
Honestly, though, we need more information.

i receive email with attachment. But anti virus from yahoo mail detect a virus in that attachment. So i can't download that attachment. I still want to download that attachment. What the solution? thank you


If you manage to download this file you will most certainly infect you PC with a Trojan Horse, Worm, or Spyware, these virusus remain on your computer copying valuable information and remembering keystrokes and send them back to the creator or host. It is therefore important that you forget about this attachment and somehow find it from a more reliable source. If it is from someone you know I have written a tip on some really good Free AntiVirus programs, (it can be found here: http://www.fixya.com/support/r6790239-virus_infection_best_free_anti_virus), that you can download and install, then run a full scan on the PC with the file. Once the PC is clean the files that are infected can be healed. The file can then be re-attached and sent virus free.

My email keeps sending out messages with a geosite attachment to all the people on my contacts list. I am not sending these emails.


That issue seems to be with virus infected on your system. You can try doing and online virus scan

1) Go to this link and download MalwareByte
http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html
(Install it and do an update for the antivirus first by clicking on the 'Update' tab, then do a scan either a quick scan or the other one)

2) Once done, download one more antivirus 'Super antispware'
www.superantispyware.com
(Perform and update for this too and do a scan)

Hope this works

Email anti virus will not allow access to email attachments


Hello my friend,  Regarding on your problem, email has an antivirus that will scan all attached files before it sends to the sender. So that part of their security to ensure the safety of the data in their client. So i recommend that if you send some files over emai lmake it sure that the file you attached is virus free. You can scan it first in your compter before you can attached it in the email. Or avoid sending files.exe extension to avoid the block.
Hope this suggestion helps you to understand the reason why this things happen and able to help your problem solve.
If you need more assistance just reply to this post. thank you
