I saw where a user had been hit with a Virus and thought it might be a good idea to revisit PC and On-Line safety Issues? Just a note: You need to be very careful about following Links in e-mails or on Yahoo Messenger, or Facebook (Or any of the other Social Networking Sites.) My wife and I started out both using SEP11.0... Somewhere she went zapped SEP and I have tried everything short of reformating the hard drive to get SEP11.0 reinstalled. She is now using aVast Free. But, again she got one of those fake ransomware Virus tools because she followed a link somewhere... "Your PC Could Be Infected!" (Please follow our link so we can infect your machine and demand ransom!) That was the hardest to remove and took literally tens of hours to finally get rid of without losing all her passwords, etc. Safe Mode, Folder Searches, Manual Registry Edits... Etc... Rules: 1. Unless you absolutely know the person sending the e-mail... Delete it without readinging... (Even if you know the person sending the e-mail, they make have a trojan that is using their mailing list...) 2. Even if you know the person sending the e-mail if the subject line doesn't "fit" them, delete the message and e-mail them separately and ask them if they sent such and such and e-mail and if they did to resend it. 3. Use a Pop-Up Blocker! IE8 comes with one. 4. Do not arbitrarily follow any links unless you absolutely know where it's taking you. (Note: Yahoo search includes warnings in it's search results if a site has been know to offer or have malicious downloads. Google does NOT. So, if you are not all that PC Literate use Yahoo vs Google or the others.) ? More ?
