    Site opened in email..virus?


    My brother got an email from a friend..but it was phished. Opened up a link in it (thought it was his friend) and his pc froze and he probably got nervous and freaked out a little..so he just shut it down. The pc seems fine now..but unsure if anything could be damaged from just that?

    He is running scans now but isn't finding anything.

    Anything else he could do to make sure the pc is fine? Thanks.

    It looks that there must be a virus that can infect your windows anytime so you should try different antivirus avast not32 etc.
