GETTING OFF THE SUBJECT BUT:
I have had the unfortunate exprience of my computer 'invaded' by a worm like virus that travels by e;mail it apparently uses the address book in outlook express to spread it's infection.
it actually used one of the characters names on the forum as the sender, the sender doesn't even know that he or she is transmitting the infection.
It's too late for myself, i shall have to re-install ALL of my software. But i appeal to members of the forum.
1. USE THE LATEST VIRUS UPDATES ON YOUR ULITITY PROGRAMS.
2. BACKUP YOUR DATA ON A REGULAR BASIS.
3. TRY NOT TO PUT NAMES ON THE ADDRESS BOOK OF YOUR E;MAIL PROGAMES. keep them elsewhere like on an MS WORD program. This is how it spreads.
DON'T LET IT GET YOU!!
FOR MORE INFO ON THIS VIRUS
