Peter thanks, I did get this, but I immediately DELETE anything that doesn't have a recognizable name of a friend on it!

Good idea ...

That's a good idea, but do remember that a lot of the e-mail viruses actually send themselves out to everyone in an address book so they will look like they came from a friend.

Practice safe computing - have a virus scanner and keep the virus definitions up to date at least every week.

Re: Good idea ...

Yea, I cracked up because they actually used the name of a good friend of mine in Washington.
