Thanks Pam...

I use eScan... anybody ever hear of it? My IP highly recommends it,
and it checks for updates about twice daily.

Good morning everyone,

I just wanted to remind everyone that if you haven't updated your
virus
protection software in the last day or 2 to be sure and do so.
Someone on
the list has contracted a virus which is sending itself to others.  If
you
aren't running a good anti virus program already then I urge you to
get one
immediately.  The cost is well worth it! If you just cant afford to
buy one
right now there are some decent free AV apps out there but they don't
usually protect as well.


According to Hackfix.org the following AV programs are rated at 100%
detection:

PC Cillin

iew.ht

Norman (NOT Norton-Norton is currently rated at 95%)

McAfee

Kaspersky

Antidote

AntiVir is a good free one, currently rated at 97%

Take care,
