I was meaning the email virus type that you don't have to open for it to execute. I get them all the time. Reason I know is because PC-Cillin tells me when it detects something. I have some commercial email addresses, like webmaster@xxxxxxxxxxxx, and so harvested by all the spam jerks. I get atleast 1 virus email a day and sometimes 5 or 6. The KLEZ.E and KLEZ.H, according to the stuff I receive, is still alive and well, kicking and screaming, is the most prevalent virus out there, and apparently continuing to infect people daily. You gotta share your secrets with me. =) Pam > > >Hi Pam, >Since IE 6 came out, only pics will auto open. > >Before, that, I never could figure out how everyone was getting >all the viruses >and I never saw one?
