<grin> well for the time being I have put up my email protection its usually not necessary since my isp has norton and that usually works however its not detecting the viruses, so I have put my own up as well with avg9. this means more space used on my drive and a few more resources used but at least nothing will sneak in here. If it gets any worse I may have to bar all attaches which will be a hastle if someone wants to send me things over email. Come to think of it that hardly happens now but still.
