[Elfsea] OT but need advise

unfortunately this instance is not a hoax-----last wednesday as i started to check my email, my PCcillin started screaming virus alert, virus name 0, with the symbol i described earlier.....the Pccillin had just updated a little earlier that day, so it was up to date...now that pc is inoperable, apparently it infected all the application exe files turning them off, but this could have been an outcome of the PCcillin sequestering infected files
strangely enough the attack didnt come in an email it started as soon as i cliked on the check email button on my brouser
any help will be appreciated

The only place I have ever seen that symbol used with a virus warning, was 
on the old sector 0 virus hoax, the one that says you have an email virtual 
greeting card and then when you open the e-mail you get a virus that will 
wipe out sector 0 on your hard drive. On the other hand several virus' and 
worms are released into the wild every day, and some are copy cats.

You need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it 
should, use WD-40.
If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape
