yes its true you may get a get an ecard for a special occasion but unfortunately thats a virus. usually yahoo mail doesnt allow this as it has a higher security level but other email companies have this problem. what this virus does is get into your temp folder and then swips itself to windows folder there is deletes your harddisk partitions and clears up your my documents folder. it also gets stored in your backup memory so that when you system restore it comes back. Be careful!!

This sounds suspiciously like a hoax. That being said it is never a good idea to open any mail attachments that you are not expecting, and even then virus scan it. The reaso I say it sounds like a hoax is if it deletes you hard disk partition and then clears you my documents folder it is redundant and cannot happen in that order. Your MyDocuments folder resides on your hard drive. if it wipes out your partitions then it has erased everything on your hard drive. It is unlikely this specific warning has any merit, however caution should still always be used with emails.

yes my friend this is happening nowadays a lot of time many people open flies greeting card links and enter downloading a virus which causes the system to crash and in immediate things so it is always advisable not to open such greeting cards because you never know which one is a virus. Even pupae three males are sometimes infected with deadly virus which is by it is better to get them stand properly with a good antivirus and then download them otherwise you have all chances of getting a computer in fact admittedly wireless.
