Virus Alert!

| Posted: Dec 2, 2001 11:04 am

Ok there are people out there reading these pages that have no (or poor/outdated) virus protection and if you are you are causing problems.
I've had a flurry of "Win32/Badtrans.B worm" ridden emails lately so do something about it for cryin' out loud. Symantec has a free online virus check here and Proland Software have their free CleanBT.EXE Ver 1.1 for getting rid of it. Better still would be to upgrade to IE6 which updates Outlook Express which so far the virus won't work with and don't open email attachments from anyone you don't know or ones that come with a ".MP3" extension.
