    John,
    Seems like a couple of baddies there.
    Just keep repeating the mantra:

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Plus, of course:
    - Keep your security software up-to-date, and
    - Never open anything if you're not sure you can trust it. This holds for attachments in e-mails but also for web pages that offer to install something for you without your having asked for it.
