Windows 7: Heads up before sending Holiday e-mail cards

Heads up before sending Holiday e-mail cards

This is a heads up e-mail!
It appears the site from Hallmark Smilebox and my contact list have been snagged by some evil person. Whoever snagged it has been actively using it.
I sent Hallmark a complaint ticket and waiting for their response. while waiting I removed their complete software along with MyWeb Search.
Ran Malware and now running SAS. 14 hits found on Malware. So be careful and if asking to transfer your account list to send a group of contacts think twice before doing it!
May even get a new e-mail address for e-mail account.

Do Not sign up for Holiday Cards from Hallmark Smilebox!!!

Thanks for your links to greeting card sites. I used to use Jacquie's site but didn't send enough cards to justify the cost!
I think I will make my own and send them using bcc contacts instead of "to!"

After running Malware (14) bugs and SAS and got (4) bugs there. Should be sparkling clean again.
