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.

Virus Guide: 11 things you should know

What is a computer virus --> Computer viruses are small software programs that are designed to spread from one computer to another and to interfere with computer operation.
A virus might corrupt or delete data on your computer, use your e-mail program to spread itself to other computers, or even erase everything on your hard disk.
Computer viruses are often spread by attachments in e-mail messages or instant messaging messages. That is why it is essential that you never open e-mail attachments unless you know who it's from and you are expecting it.
Viruses can be disguised as attachments of funny images, greeting cards, or audio and video files.
Computer viruses also spread through downloads on the Internet. They can be hidden in illicit software or other files or programs you might download.
To help avoid computer viruses, it's essential that you keep your computer current with the latest updates and antivirus tools, stay informed about recent threats, run your computer as a standard user (not as administrator), and that you follow a few basic rules when you surf the Internet, download files, and open attachments.
Once a virus is on your computer, its type or the method it used to get there is not as important as removing it and preventing further infection.

I am having a problem with my computer. I think it is a virus.

Sounds like a virus. If you have antivirus software installed, try booting to safe mode by pressing F8 repeatedly at startup. Choose the safemode option and see if you can run a virus scan. If not, click start and type msconfig into search field. From here you can check startup programs to see if there is anything unusual like numbers or letters which don't mean anything, but don't disable anything if your not sure. Most viruses can be removed but in some cases the removal can corrupt the O/S so I would back up my documents folder and any other folder that you work from first. Unfortunately, it may require a fresh install to completely get rid of the virus. May be worth speaking to your local PC repair shop.

The problem is , It started on facebook I found a link sent from my friend on facebook chat , so I opened it as I didnt know that it was a virus , and it completely ruined the computer system so I am...

Your friend's computer had a computer-virus, and that computer-virus "impersonated" your friend, and sent that message to your computer.

All you can do is to take your computer to a computer-store, and pay them to backup all your data files & music & E-mail & contacts to an external disk-drive, and then to reinstall Windows, and then to reload your files.

My files on my desktop wont open up and most of my documents have all turned to short cuts - because of a virus called Fucox.exe - please if anyone has any idea as to how to remove this devil and restore...

This seems to be a pretty bad virus that won't let you do anything on the computer, so follow the instructions on this link. If you can install programs on your computer, follow only steps 7 and 8 from the above link.

Does this happen no matter what kind of file you try to open?
It could be as simple as you don't have the right software installed that can open this kind of file, or it may be an infestation of a virus of some kind. I would need to know more to really say.
Try to open a file that you are positive you have software to open it with. Even just try right clicking on your desktop someplace and choose New --> Text Document. Find the icon on your desktop that you just created, and try to open it. If you can't, then you either have a virus or some serious corruption on your hard disk. My bet would be virus. Do a good thorough virus scan with something like Avast ( I like avast because it has a boot-time scan, which scans your computer after you reboot and before Windows starts.

Good luck! Let me know if I can help any further.
Please leave me a rating if this was helpful!
