Hi Everyone, I am retired now but have been in the business for over 40 years in IT, eventually falling into the operations environment. Since retiring 8 years ago I have observed that Microsoft's done their usual things like introduce ever new operating systems (mostly tested..hmmm!!). I have come up from early DOS environments since switching from mainframes. Seen most of them ...got the T shirt. Now with the ever changing latest systems like Windows XP and now Vista 'for profit'! I try to keep in touch but the as I had always suspected in the dim distant past, the biggest threat to our peace loving community is the Virus writers..who thrive for many reasons. Unfortunately, I try to help folks who have a lesser understanding of their PC's and who eventually fall for the inevitable scams..me included. I found your site 'in ferret mode' and was interested in some of the immediate solutions and helpful free advice. I will try this to help this site where possible but feel that I am too far behind the game to be of any useful help other than learn from others as I have always done in the past. Hope this makes sense? Best Wishes, Jeff .
