Re: OT....Darn Virus attacked...

I just did battle with "jeepers_creepers" virus.
Caught it before it did any damage, but it was close!

Sent to me by someone claiming to be from this board... This is three now...
Wonder who I might have pissed off? (line forms to the right.... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/mad.gif[/img])

So many cats, so few recipes...

Re: OT....Darn Virus attacked...

Every now and again I see messages on this board about virusses... So why haven't people affected got a decent anti virus software running on their computer. I've had many virusses sent to me in the past, but so far none have got through to do any damage. Do yourself a favour and spend 20-30 bucks on some decent anti virus software. It will save you a lot of heart ache in the future. And for those who don't want to spend any money... There are even free ones around.

Anti virus software doesn't do much good unless you update it constantly...just a reminder.

Re: OT....Darn Virus attacked...

That is true, but if you get Norton Anti Virus for instance (and most other anti virus programs as well) it can be set to automatically check and download updates every time you go on-line as and when updates come out. It is painless and makes keeping it up to date a painless exercise, even for computer illiterate people.

Re: OT....Darn Virus attacked...

This seems to work pretty good, and its FREE!!!
It automatically tells you what virus'es you have, and then you choose to remove them(who wouldnt?!?)
But, nonetheless, it found my loveletter.vbs virus.
