[TechAssist] Re: Vir*s spreading to list members******please read!

Jerry and all.
If you visit Microsoft's Window's update site, get all the critical updates,
this will help in the protection of this bad trans virus. This one will
install itself if your security settings are too low. If you have the latest
critical updates, they will change your security settings to prevent this
one from installing on it's own.
