Question by ALTA: What else can I do now? My laptop became infected with a spambot/virus when I opened an email with a friends?
opened an email that had my friends name on it. Ive run my Norton 360 and its clear. Will this be the end of it? The emails are still coming in with my friends name on them but I don’t open them. Do I need to change my password for my email.

It depends on what the virus did to your computer. With Norton you can look up the name of the Virus and see what it does and how to manually delete it. As for changing you password I would, but not from that computer. On of the most dangerous viruses that are sent around are called Trojans they will save your user names and passwords for anything that you use and send them back out on the internet for other people to use.
I had my bank information stolen this way.
