An e-mail virus is a program that attaches itself to an e-mail. If you get one in your e-mail, it can spread to the rest of your computer and cause damage. A virus will destroy files, slow down your computer, add adware to your computer or cause other issues to arise. Therefore, it is important to get rid of an e-mail virus as soon as possible.

Open your virus protection program and click "Full Computer Scan."

Wait for the scan to be completed.

Select the viruses that have appeared. There might be more than one, even if you are only aware of one of them. Click "Quarantine" or "Destroy" to get rid of the virus.

Clear every virus that you find from your computer.
