Hi,

About 10 days ago and assistant who I did not know, sent me her resume as a word file. There was a virus attached!

I thanked her but mentioned the virus. I suggested she download AVG free version to clean her PC. I have not had a response, so I guess I should delete her details. An AC who can't admit to a mistake is not much use to me!

Well, I might blame here for her lack of attentiveness to your response email, but I wouldn't nessasarily say she made a "mistake," per se. She is probably completely unaware that there was any virus involved, and probably had no hand in it at all. Indeed, she may in fact have a completely virus-free computer, as the infected file could have been infected while sitting on a server miles away from her home computer. Depending on what kind of malware it is, the sender may be completely unaffected.

But yes, she should respond to your email, regardless.
