Subject:macro virus...help! From:Aviva Rosensweig <spring -at- NETVISION -dot- NET -dot- IL> Date:Wed, 13 May 1998 16:24:33 +0300
Maybe someone out there can rescue me...
I came to work this morning and found that I couldn't open up an
important word97 document. I get a strange message; a window opens with
the words "NO. 1 Macro virus??" in the title bar of the window, and then
a lot of questions marks, numbers and today's date in the upper part of
the window. Then a blank text box. I have check either "cancel" (which
accomplishes nothing) or "OK" which then opens alot of blank word
I also suspect that the document (which was supposed to be a regular
.doc file) was somehow saved as a .dot file.
