Internet connection coming and going.
Mail sErever timing out.
Passwords keep on needing to be reset.
Are those symptoms you are seeing?
Then you have the new virus / worm I mentioned earlier.
How do I know this? I couldn't possibly say :-I
i have firfox - um as of lastnight. should i delete the partitions and create new - blah blah?
shit! what antivirus you use peter?
what antivirus you use peter?
On my own laptop Norton
@ work McAfee
Updating the virus defs is the first thing I do on my own PC when I start up and on my work PC it is done automatically at logon.
I do run Firefox (unoficially). the problem is once this virus / worm gets into a network it searches for PCs with weak passwords on their Admin user and tries to login on them - creating a lot of network traffic and sometimes locking out "real" users from their machines - oh and also crashing authentication servers and proxy servers.
I just hope today's better.
