First day back and totally wasted day.
Apparently the combination of 1300 emails and being 10 days out of Eset AV updates has frozen my system over and over. It slams up to 100% CPU and pretty well stays there. I’m about halfway through the emails. Most of the spam is in French so Multiquoque must be selling me to lists. Eset has gone on downloading for hours and the cancel update tab, doesn’t.
Probably the only way out is to use Squirrelmail on the laptop to reduce the wave. Outlook seems to only choke on it. Will have it sorted by Monday.
