I am far from being an expert on viruses and virus scanners. I just execute
the scanners like any other ignorant Windows user :)
The other alert that I had was on SetupImgBurn_2.5.8.0.exe ADW_OPENCANDY
listed as spyware. I think that is a CD/DVD burning program that I
installed about a year ago. If that was the source, then it's had a long
time to do it's dirty work :(

I got an alert so I alerted you. If no real problem then great, sorry to
bother you.

Nice work on ProText. I haven't used it recently. I still have a lot to
learn how to use it. On one document using the same font as in a MS Word
document, ProText generated text that had thinner lines. IMHO that made the
text harder to read. But it sure soundly beat Word in formatting the text!
I tried to study how fonts were made several years back. I gave up: too
complicated and really not that interesting. But vital to computers, books,
etc. I will use ProText again.

Regards,
John Coleman
