These pictures mysteriously appeared on my computer from someone's webshots, but I did not put them there and no one has been on my computer except for me. The pictures were found in an email with the same file name that they were assigned on my computer. I have norton and spysweeper, so my computer has been scanned. I was mainly concerned if it is possible that a virus or some spyware program that enables someone to take pictures from a website and load them to someone else's computer and assign a name for them? If so, what virus is it and how can I prevent it from happening again. Thanks

I have already removed the photos from my computer and scanned with both norton and spysweeper. My computer is clean, but does a virus or spyware program exist that can attach pictures to someone else's computer? I don't need to know what virus it is, just if it is possible. Thanks

none that i can think of off the top of my head, however, im sure there is or will eventually cause malware is getting more & more advanced (dangerous) everyday, which is why updates are released almost daily for anti-malware progs :whistling:
