Suspected malicious email - Can I move to a Flashdrive Folder Unopened

Q: Suspected malicious email - Can I move to a Flashdrive Folder Unopened

I have an email sitting in my Hotmail Junk Mail folder which is causing concern. Because of my email security settings, that is the Folder that this message has been rightfully delivered to....

The sender's name, email address and subject line are authentic, however when looking at the Junk Mail Properties, I note that the email is merely a means for delivering a rather large [8717KB] PDF - there is no message shown in the body of the email to indicate what the PDF contains.

What I would like to do is move or copy the unopened email and attachmentto a Flashdrive, and then delete it from the Hotmail Junk Mail folder of my email account, thus isolating it completely.

Is there any way in which I can do this without opening the email or it's attachment?

Preferred Solution: Suspected malicious email - Can I move to a Flashdrive Folder Unopened

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm not sure whether the attachment can be moved without opening the message, but perhaps you might consider installing a trial (non activated version) of Windows 7 inside a virtual machine, and then accessing your Hotmail account from within the VM? If the attachment goes nuclear on you, chances are that only the VM is compromised, which is easily taken care of by simply deleting it.

Have an e mail, unopened without an attachment, stuck in my inbox. Its for "Microsoft Office 2007 Home & Student for $59.99". The e mail before it and after it also will not move. Have tried to move them to another folder but when I right or left click on it the CPU goes to 100% and the PC locks. Shut down and restart. Once I dont go near the 3 e mails the PC works perfectly. Have Antivirus and when I do full system scan the scan stops at "inbox.dbx7.technology.wmv" every time. It cannot get past this file. Firewall on and Antivirus up to date and getting daily updates.

Yeah . . . it was a dumb thing to do, but I inadvertently deleted the folder, even after I saw the warning. But I was distracted, and now my unopened items folder in Outlook is gone. Is there a way to get it back, because it's a pain to scroll through all my inbox folders to check unopened items.

Thanks, Pat

Windows 10 running Outlook 2016. When I did a fresh install I set up 3 email address and added my .csv files of contacts and calendar form prior install. I did not pay attention and Outlook 2016 assigned them to an email address I now wish to get rid of.

Did a web search and didn't come up with a good reliable way to transfer the folder to another email address PST file. Any ideas appreciated. Thanks.

We used to be on Exchange 5.5 and running mostly Outlook 2000 clients. Many of our users had a rule that would move emails from Internal staff (people in the Global Address List) to a special folder. In this way they could focus on them first.

We recently upgraded to Exchange 2003 and are now running mostly Outlook 2003. Oddly enough the rule no longer has any effect. Currently the rule looks for people in a specific address book (GAL) and moves them to a specified folder as they arrive. Only...it doesn't work.

No errors, it just does nothing.

I have been searching around for sometime but have not really found anything that seems to help.

Any suggestions?

My HP G72 laptop has been having trouble for some time, so I've decided to restart it to factory condition, but I don't want to have to buy a new Microsoft office package (I've used up all the allowed subscription things per individual package). So I want to move Microsoft to a flashdrive, so that I can put it back onto my factory-conditioned laptop.
I wanted to know: is it even possible? How much memory does the flashdrive have to have? and will a guy with almost no knowledge of computers be able to do it?

Hi there,
I'm posting this on the Vista forum because the problem started from a Vista machine - it turns out to happen on an XP machine too.
See attached screen-shot of a folder in my Imation 8Gig NANO flash drive:
(if you cant see it, folders in the weird folder are named with weird characters (squares, upside down question marks, parentheses etc) and dated wrongly (1996, 2026) and the files sizes are wrong.
What's happened here? The other folders work fine.... How do I start to recover the weird folders contents?

This is something that's been "bugging" me for awhile now and I haven't been able to get a definitive answer, maybe someone can shed some light.

Once in awhile a virus is transmitted before an anti-virus maker is able to make available via it's virus definition or pattern table the fix. In this case (I recently had this problem) if you copy or move the suspected file to a blank floppy and then open it (my virus checker automatically checks it at this point) and the file does contain a virus and your virus program doesn't detect it, does the virus stay on the A drive floppy and not migrate anywhere else? To me, the purpose of doing this is so that the file can then be isolated and checked in the future when newer anti-virus maker patterns are available. I would do only for reasons of curiosity and to also be able to send the suspected file to one of the different anti-virus program makers to have it verified as such. Many have a process in place for this to be done.

A:Copy/move suspected virus file to A drive

No, if you have a virus on a floppy and open it, it goes to your HD.

I have a new ASUS notebook and it uses Windows 8. On my home pc I have Windows Vista and was able to set up multiply email accounts in Window Live Mail. (my charter, my hubby charter, 2 school google accounts and yahoo)
I was able to read mail coming thru our main email acct (my charter), if an email came thru that needed to go to my hubbys account or another account I was able to drop and drag it to the other account listed on the screen.

I have most of my emails set up on my new ASUS notebook. Is there any way to drop and drag emails from one account to another? I can drag the email and hover over the new email account, but it does not drag it.

Thanks for any help. I am new to the notebook thing and windows 8.

I've had this problem for a few months, just lived with it. In the attached screen shots, you will see I have no folder trees in any of the pop up Add, Move, or Copy pop ups in Explorer and Windows Media Player. I have no clue if this can be restored to show again. This has happened before I upgraded Media Player so it shouldnt be that. I'm thinking Windows Corruption somewhere. I have not and do not have any malware on this machine or any other that I have networked. My system is clean and runs 1000%. Any ideas on how I can restore the folder trees?

I was doing some organizing (I don't know why, but I don't have "organize" in my bookmarks menu?) and moved one main folder into another folder by mistake, now can't move it back out into the main bookmarks menu.
Have done a search and nothing I can find will work.

This can't be that difficult!


A:Firefox, Yahoo: How to move bookmarks folder out of another folder?

Organize favorites is for IE. For Firefox you can restore your bookmarks by clicking on Bookmarks in the Menu Bar, click Show All Bookmarks, click the Import and Backup button, click Restore, click Choose File and then navigate to and select the .json file that was moved. Firefox will place a copy of the .json file (which are your bookmarks) back to the default folder. If you want, you can select a recent backup copy from the drop down list instead of choose file. That would save you a few clicks.

After restoring your bookmarks you can delete the accidentally moved file.

I'm new to this sort of thing so I hope I do this right!

I'm running Windows XP Home Edition with SP3.

Recently, I noticed when I tried to move to/copy to from the Explorer window, my folder tree was blank in the little box that pops up. Regardless of whether I use the links to the left of the window or if I go into Edit - Copy To (or Move To), it happens with anything involving the explorer - documents, photos, etc. The only changes made recently was I had made an account on the computer for my kids, then deleted it not long after, without saving their folders (because they never used the account). Any other changes (installing programs, etc) happened after I noticed the blank box. It's not a major issue but it is slightly annoying.

Any ideas? And thank you ahead of time!

I have a boot drive which is 250gb (My C drive). I have Win 7 and some apps on it.
I have installed Steam on my other hard drive. So far most games have been cooperative and install their folders close to Steam!

However, one game in particular (Empire Total War) has installed one of its folders in "C:\Users\XYZ\AppData\Roaming\The Creative Assembly".

From experience from my old PC, I know this folder (The Creative Assembly) can grow to close to 20gb in a matter of a year. I don't want that to happen and therefore thought of relocating, moving, or redirecting this folder (The Creative Assembly) to another location.

How do I do that and is that recommended? (I could simply go ahead and do this right now, but I would rather get some expert opinions first before any instabilities in my system).

Thank you.

A:Move a folder within the appdata/roaming folder to another location?

If you attempt to move the folder any programs dependant on that folder would have to know where to look for it, if you do attempt it i would leave the original in situ and copy/paste to new drive then attempt to redirect program if it fails then you still have original

Im not familiar with steam but as long as you can redirect the games save file path to new location if you have that option then i dont see why you cant do it

I can't seem to predict when XP Pro SP2 will let me move a folder from SharedDocs\My Videos
to C:\ and when it won't! I don't get it. If I'm Owner don't I own it already?

Sometimes I can just grab the folder that I copied from another machine and placed in My Videos and just
drag it with the Left Mouse Button into another folder on C:\ and it just moves it by changing the directory entries. Then sometimes when I do that, it copies all the files!! Well with video files that's pretty slow!!

Anyone have a clue? Seems to be no rhyme or reason to it.

A:Move Folder Out Of Shared Folder Same Drive Wants To Copy?

Hello MilesAhead,I'm not absolutely sure, but some of the phrases in your problem description seem to indicate that this might be a variation of the "XP + mouse movement + mouse buttons + keyboard keystrokes" behavior described in the following post. The post deals with the unexpected copying of files when trying to delete them, but I thought the same (or a similar) principle might apply with respect to moving files/folders.

This is the message I get, I want to delete the folder since I no longer need it. The folder contains ScpControl.dll and.ScpService.exe. I haven't found it in the Task manager processes list. Here is some background info on the folder in case it's useful:

While connected it flashes one red light slowly to indicate charging. But once I D/C it won't stop flashing all 4 red lights (presumably until the battery dies). I haven't used it wirelessly yet, only via the USB cable that came with the DS3. Holding the PS button for 10 secs worked as a temporary solution to stop the controller flashing.

Hi, I received this email in my AOL mailbox today. Don't know who it's from, or what it's purpose is. I did see it contained my screen password, which I promptly changed after reading the email. Could someone please tell me what this email is all about--I am not smart when it comes to malicious intent, but I think it must be involved somewhat in this email. What harm can opening that email cause? I am ok, since I changed my password? Do I need to change the password on all my AOL screen names? Also, I 've heard about firewalls, but don't know much about them, do I need to install something like this? Could anyone recommend a free one? I don't want to open the email again to post it here, but it says something like this:

I got an email from a client that looked legit; I later found out it wasn't from him. When I clicked the link to access the 'secure email' it opened a blank internet explorer window, not sure what the web address, but nothing on the page. Shortly after I got an email from EA/Origin saying the following:
"The password for your Origin account was recently reset because a standard systems analysis indicated that your user name and password may have been subject to suspicious activity. We have no reason to believe at this time that the suspicious activity is the result of unauthorised access to EA's databases. Instead, such activity could be related to issues with phishing, use of weak passwords, logging in from shared connections or even using the same password on multiple websites. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause you and hope you will recognise we're taking this action to better protect your personal data."
I didn't click the link there to reset it, I reset my password directly on the site. I didn't have an active account there at all and had no games or anything in my profile so there would be nothing for anyone to gain by having access to my account (I think).
My concern is on my computer. I ran malware bytes but it didn't find anything. What to do to make sure that my computer isn't compromised. I cant imagine that I clicked a malicious link that does nothing.

When I try to move files from one folder to another (or off a device on to my computer), not all of them move. I have tried drag & drop, and cut & paste. I don't get an error message or anything like that, some of the files just don't move. So I have to go through file by file and see what didn't make it, very tedious! I have tried moving as few as 25 at a time, and they still don't all make it. Can anyone help?

Seems like some were in use by something.

Anyway, can you try using Fastcopy? (this is the official website with download, select Executable (32bit), yes the guy making it is japanese, don't worry about the download page being in japanese, the program is in english)
It's simple and does usually tell you why it wasn't able to move files, so you can have a clue of what is going on.
For moving lots of files, it's much better than copy-paste/drag&drop. Also because of its options (as explained on its site).

In case of other problems, report back.

Today i just downloaded Panda Internet Security Free 6 Months Trial(ask me for the link in the comment section if you want installer). After completing installation i scanned my PC with Hitman Pro & it detected 2 Malwares in my system. Surprisingly these were dll files in Panda's Installation Folder. I suspected them to be False Positives, thus i did a virustotal scan on these 2 files. Results were bit shocking.

Please advise. You folks have been very helpful in the past. Mcafee folks have given us little
help after two calls. See highjacked file below.

Hope to hear from you soon and thanks,

Subject: MALICIOUS CODE ALERT: Katrina Email Scam
DLA CERT has issued a Bulletin warning users of a new email scam which attempts to lure users into visiting a malicious website. The message gives a brief news update on Hurricane Katrina and provides a link to the full news story. This website contains encoded __JavaScript, which attempts to exploit two HTML Help vulnerabilities. Microsoft has addressed these vulnerabilities with Security Bulletin MS05-001.

In the event that either of the exploits are successful, a Trojan downloader is placed on the workstation. The Trojan begins downloading a second malicious file, which is also a Trojan. The second Trojan has backdoor functionality that gives the attacker complete control of the workstation.

The technique, exploit, and Trojan used in this attack are nearly identical to the Iraqi News Mail Scam that began circulating in early August.

The first website involved in the attack is hosted in Mexico; the second is in the United States. Both were online at the time of this alert.

Several hundred new websites requesting donations for Hurricane Katrina relief have been found. Many of these sites are believed to be fraudulent.

We strongly recommend you verify the authenticity of any charity before making a donation


It sucks that whenever there's a national tragedy, some a-hole has to try to make a dime off of it.

Hello again!

As I had an EXCELLENT experience with Gringo the last time around, I thought I'd stop back with my next project.

This is a Dell Inspiron 530 desktop running Windows 7 Professional, 32-bit. This is one of the main computers at a small business. I mention this because it includes some programs not normally found on personal computers I've worked on in the past. This includes Dyn Updated, Quickbooks, Intuit Data Backup, to name a few. I figure this might make it a bit more difficult when navigating around while we clean.

Here's what I know: Computer was infected about 4-5 days ago after the user received a malicious email from a sender claiming to be UPS or Fedex. The email attachment claimed to have information about a package that would be dropped off or picked up (the user isn't sure which), and you needed to open and print the attached "receipt" to receive your package.

This installed one of the fake "security" suites that has been removed earlier this morning. I feel like there is still a rootkit hanging on somewhere, and aswMBR seemed to detect something pertaining to Microsoft Security Essentials (the entry was highlighted in RED) RIGHT before Windows bluescreened with an IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error or something of the sort. Logs are attached below, and I eagerly await your advice. Nothing will be done until I am instructed to do so.

A:Infected - User opened UPS malicious email attachment

Greetings and Welcome back to The Forums!!Here are the things to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier and faster for both of usPlease do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.
We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.
Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post.Please read every post completely before doing anything.
Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process.Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.
A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.NOTE: At the top of your post, click on the Watch Topic Button, select Immediate Notification, and cli...

We are using Domino 7.0.3 and Lotus notes client 7.0.2. We have 3 domino servers. One is the smtp server and admin server, with no user mail files on it. The other two are a cluster where all the mail files live. We are running Windows 2003 server std with updated service packs and updates on the two clusters. Windows server 2k sp4 is on the smtp server.

One one pc and only one, a user is reporting folders missing. these are custom folders she created under the folders drop down on the left for the mail window. We checked both copies of her mail files and the folders no longer exist.

We had our consultant check the design of the folders and he could find no reason for the folder to not be there.

We checked all the other folders to see if it had been moved to one of them and it was not there either.

this just started happening since one of the employees of this manager was let go. The folders in question had to do with this person's HR business.

I have checked protocol activitiy and see quite a bit for TCP Port 1026 on several LAN pc's including this one.

This person has a told of folders but I have even more and have never had a problem.

Am I paranoid to think something malicious may be going on? If so, what should I look for?

I am planning to scan her PC with malware bytes and superantispyware when I have a chance.

Any and all suggestions are welcome!

I received an email that I thought was from PayPal.  The email had an attachment that I opened and I may have acquired a virus. I sent the email with the attachment to PayPal and asked them if it was legitimate.  They responded that it was NOT legitimate and in the Subject Line of their reply were the words: "WARNING: VIRUS REMOVED". I used System Restore to restore my computer to an earlier date.  I ran a full scan with Malwarebytes AntiMalware & AntiRootkit; Trend Micro Antivirus & RootkitBuster software.  Initially I was unable to run the Malwarebytes programs but was able to do so in the Safe mode.  The programs did not find anything identified as a virus. I do have a suspicious window that appears when I restart the computer and it only closes when I click beside it. The window has one line in it that reads: "C:\\WINDOWS\System32\cmd.exe".  I have attached copies of the logs requested. Can you recommend how to find and remove the virus (if there is one)? Thank in advance for your help.

My sharp wife did a mindless act after opening her web mail account by opening an email that appeared to be from her niece and clicking on a link in the text.  What she got after that was suspicious, and she went back to check things out.  There was a permutation in the supposed email address of the niece; the other clue was the strange subject, and even the text of the message was off beat.  Lots of manifestations of evil, but she allowed herself to get ahead of her ski tips.
Results:  the https in the address window has a red, diagonal line across it.  After she signed out of her account, I logged into her account from a different computer, and I experienced no diagonal line.  
In a chat with Earthlink staff where she has her email account, she was advised to do a full AV scan, and also try resetting her Chrome browser to Chrome's default configuration.  Neither of these actions eliminated the red, diagonal line over the https in the browser's address window.  In the chat with Earthlink tech support, a temporary password was issued in order to log on.  (The traditional password had worked, but it was advised to change it.) The newly issued password was used to  log on line at the Earthlink server which then an even newer, more sophisticated password was established.

A:Email account made insecure after clicking on malicious link

Hi Auklet,
I think what I'd do under these circumstances is this:
1) Pop over to the Virus, Trjoan, Spyware and Malware Removal room with the affected computer, run the requested scans and post the required logs and get a check-up to make sure that nothing untoward has come on board.  Without knowing specific details (the link address, etc, but please don't post that!) we can't tell you categorically whether you are infected or not.
2) Using a different computer that is known to be clean, immediately change the password on that email account and any other security information connected to it as appropriate (such as any password reminder questions and answers).
3) If the same password is used on any other site on the Internet, immediately go over to those sites and change it.  Especially if the email address you used to register there is that one.
4) Don't use the affected computer for anything online outside of any fix procedure given in the malware removal room, especially don't use it for banking or shopping until you've been given the all-clear.
Good luck!

This morning my msn email account had letters from family letting me know that my msn address has been sending emails from my account that contain malicious links. When that family member clicked on the link it started downloading and could not be stopped until she used control/alt/delete to shut off the computer.

Yesterday I had just opened an email account with Gmail and imported my address book. Is this related? Or maybe, is this problem tied to when the gaming system PS3 had its data hacked a few months back--personal data areas were hacked that included email, credit cards, and passwords, etc.? Either way, I need to find where the problem is and fix it.

I went to MSN Live solutions center, downloaded and ran their recommended tool to locate problems--a quick scan found nothing. I am running Nortons Antivirus that came with my Qwest MSN account. My main computer is running XP Media edition, 32 bit, with service pack 3.

Please help me locate the trouble and fix this. I have sent a warning email to my whole address book from my new Gmail account to hopefully prevent others from getting this.

A:MSN email address book hacked, sending malicious links

Update--so far MSN says it sounds like a virus, but nothing was found. We reset the computer to an earlier date, about 8 days earlier, and then Norton's wouldn't run. It had 3 error codes; 3043,1 3040,20011 and 3040,20063. Nortons Fix it didn't work on these codes and after following their recomendations, it still didn't work. Finally uninstalled Nortons and reinstalled. Ran quick scan, found 8 small problems and it fixed those. Ran again as full scan, found 4 more concerns and automatically repaired those as well.

Ran Microsoft Safety Scanner for full scan- nothing found. Ran SpyBot search and destroy--nothing found.

Talked to Qwest, because they were the number Norton's sent me too (Qwest provides my DSL). Qwest took the info and looked at my email account. They noticed the virus links all end in /world.html and many have more in common like modules/Search/world.html Qwest is looking into that, but who knows if they will find where this started? Qwest did say that copies of email sent from my MSN account were being sent to another account, my husband's email. We checked his account- non of my emails are there, except the spam email with the virus link.

This makes me worry--is someone intercepting my email? Maybe I didn't understand. My husband's email is on my account as an alternate in case something happens.
I have not had a chance to contact Gmail yet. It seems like more than a little bit of a coincindence that my ... Read more

Hello! Since about last Thursday/Friday (11/5/09ish) I've been experiencing issues with my computer. I suspect it came from facebook, but am not certain and wish for your guys to take a look at my logs'. Whatever it is, it took hold of my email address and sent URl's (spam) to my contacts etc). The reason I thought it was facebook related is because facebook ONLY on this computer doesn't work properly. I will click other peoples pages and it won't load (just a blank page with the top part of the facebook page loaded) but then if I relaod it, it comes right up. Also, it will not let me do any status updates, just weird things like that. I have changed the username/password for facebook and use a different email. I deleted that address completely so my friends wouldn't keep getting the spam.

Other issues since this all happened, just slower, it freezes completely with some programs. I have done AVG scans (which take WAAAAAY longer than usual) and it has come up with nothing. Also I have run clean up, and spybot, and nothing from the spybot.

I hope this helps, I've attached the files (2 and DDS below). I really appreciate your time and help!!!

OK, so last night I downloaded a bad torrent. I tried to delete it and a folder that was only supposed to contain 20 different files, somehow became 4,500 files, and using up a gig of HDD space, and will NOT delete no matter how many times I have tried. A friend of mine told me to create a new folder and move it into it and that should help (not sure if it will or not), but when I tried to move the torrent folder into the newly created folder I get and error message that reads "You will need to provide administrator permission to move to this folder". I am the only one that has ever used this laptop. There is nobody else. So I AM the administrator, so this is not making a whole lot of sense to me.

So if anybody could PLEASE provide with a solution with both why the file will not delete, and the 'Admin'. problem it would be greatly appreciated. Am I doing the right thing by attempting to move the torrent into another folder to get this deleted?

I am usually pretty good with figuring out these problems on my own, but this one has me stumped. Thank you in advance for any help regarding this matter.
