I crashed so hard today....

I crashed so hard today. Couldn't even format. Had to yank the hard drive and fdisk in another machine. It was nasty. Was it viral, or me pushing the envelope?

Look out though, somthin' might be out there.

Nasty, indeed! Let's hope that this isn't widespread. Many folks only have one machine.

Norton Anti-viruse stopped something new for me yesterday. I came impersonating a return mail, undeliverable, the attachment was faked and infected. I was in a big rush and deleted it, I should have taken a closer look. Im on meds and not doing my clearest thinking!

me too

A couple of days ago I got a virus which Norton 2002 alerted me to, it was a JS Seeker. Funny, I haven't had a virus in quite some time. Coincidence?
