Regarding the mesages that appear as garbage are exactly that. The message is
compiled c and is most definitely a virus. Contrary to some peoples opinion e-
mail messages can and do carry viruses and often are hidden in attachments and
some attachments are hidden. The safest way to aviod this problem is to put
all downloaded files in a seperate dir. and scan with a program capable of
scaning compressed and ( I know this not the right word but my A.D.D is
kicking my rear at the moment.) closed files I hope that makes sense to
everyone I'm sure it does but if not please excuse me. I'm writing this for my
mother. Who's computer is trashed at the noment and is going to be a fun job
fixing . Please be careful.
