I prob shouldn't be posting here but i dunno where to post so…

I received an e-mail from lloyds bank saying i sent 2 500good boy points to someone. It included a doc so i opened it.

There's a strong chance i opened a virus right? What am i suposed to do now?

Did you use Microsoft Word and did it ask you to allow macros? There might be other exploits for .doc files, but embedded Macros are the usual intrusion point.
