    Do you have Norton Anti Virus or McAfee on your computer? They usually quarantine it prior to it hitting your system. Go to www.symantec.com

    Senna,

    The problem is that virus' are spreading FASTER than the anti-virus folks have solutions. Therefore the Anti-Virus software is worthless at stopping said virus. Of course if you do have a virus, many of them are removable via the UPDATED version (days later) anti-virus software.

    Then again... An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

    Enjoy the Drive,

    Steven R. Rochlin

    Why don't you install an anti-virus software. I have Norton on my computer and it's been working great.

    Norton anti virus in combination with ad-aware. Works fine, and delete everything from unknown senders without a clear subject without even looking. If they want a reply they have to type a clear subject
