John, yes, I believe the Trojan ran on Windows. In fact, I just met my kids schoolmaster, and turns out she was also a victim of that person - already 3-4 years ago!!! Her daughter learned with his in the same school, and apparently he got mad at them and started abusing them in the most crazy ways - for instance, he intercepted family pictures sent to them, and _disfigured_the_pictures!! She went to the police but I guess was less lucky and they didn't find him, she changed computers, dial-up connection, etc. etc...

As you say - movie stuff. Amir
