Just a quick one here to say, everyone make sure your anti-virus programs are updated. We have had two attempted virus infections through our email in two days. If you receive any unusual and suspicious email DO NOT OPEN THEM and if you happen to do so make sure you do not open any attachments.
We have very good protection and no virus can get to our in box as they are blocked at our server, then they let us know they are there so we can go there and delete them.
Please be aware that there are some nasty ones going around at the moment. :eek:

They sent us the first one which was the FBI one to both our computers then today I found that I had another one sent. What they do is if they don't get you the first time they change their addy till they think they will get through. We pay $1 a month to our server so that any email that isn't in our accept list doesn't actually come through to our in box, they are blocked and we can go there and log in and check to see what is there, if we want to accept them we have the choice. We both received a message from them yesterday telling us that they had actually blocked the virus and that we could go there and look at it safely without it actually getting to our computer. I am very cautious and just went there and deleted them.
These people who do this are obviously
and the world is full of them.
Another thing that happened to me this morning is I opened that site for cheap car booster seat in that thread and my computer froze so I had to shut down and I was then advised to download an update because there is spyware in a lot of these sites. I was having this problem with other sites too where my Internet Explorer would just hang and I couldn't do a thing till I CTRL - ALT- DEL out of them and reboot.
I have so much security on my computer but still they get through

Well between hubby and I we have now had 6 infected email attempts blocked by our server. They too send us a message to let us know they have blocked it and they tell us we can go there and read them if we want to without infecting our own PCs but I just go there and delete them, I am not taking any chances. The thing is if they don't get through the first time they change the heading and address to try to trick you, but thankfully they can't trick our server
