Yet another virus

These viruses shouldn't be a problem for Windows users either. For various
job-related reasons, I have been using Windows for email for 5 years
now. I have never had a single successful infection. Any decent virus
scanner, kept updated, will keep you protected.

The real threat now is trojans that can install themselves disguised as a
legitimate zip, mov, avi, mpg, etc file. You click, it downloads &
installs, game over. Fdisk & reinstall Windows. I just went through
that. Trojan Defence Suite does a great job of monitoring potential trojan
installations. See
