why does essiantials let a virus thru to my email?

By ednamc ·
I have Microsoft Security Essentials installed. A trogan or virus has hijacked my email address book---it has sent emails to everyone in my address book. How do I handle this problem?

MSE is an AV, just not an email scanner . . .

by Who Am I Really In reply to change software

I can't find any info that suggests MSE being an email scanner,

for that you'd need a plugin for your email client,

also there is more than one delivery method for Malware in email and the attachment is only one
other methods include "open the email and yer hosed via script" etc.
