  • Virus Hoax

    If someone sends you an e-mail telling you that you probably have an infected computer, and suggests which file to delete, don't do it! Before you do anything, check this out: http://www.symantec.com/avcenter/ven...e.warning.html

    I remeber that one from a while back. Must be recirculating again. Why do people have to do this stuff? Are there lives so bad that they have to create havoc to feel alive? We've really been lucky so far.

      I've got a virus!
      by Ed_L
      A virus slipped through tonight in my e-mail. The sender is [email protected], and the subject is Re: Sample.

      Do I have a virus?

      Important update on virus

      Still wondering about possible virus (What's .HQX?)
      by Ed_L
      I have not been able to find a virus on my computer or my wife's, even though I've done several scans, both online and local. But I recently received an e-mail that seemed to come from my wife, but it didn't. It had an attachment, which I didn't open.
