Microsoft does send out emails [to certain people and beta testers , I know I am one of those] but they never ever send out a direct download only an URL and only a proper email not a pop-up message such as this. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TTFN - Vic To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a little better; whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ _____ From: pcductape-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:pcductape-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Debb Sent: Wednesday, February 04, 2004 6:47 AM To: pcductape@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [pcductape] Re: Can anyone tell me what this means?
