    Or you can simply turn off your PC when not in use, and use adequate security when in use. Seriously though, many people have no idea how their PCs are being used. They are as oblivious to these uses as they are oblivious as to why their PC seems so much slower than it used to be. Many are oblivious to what AV or AM mean and have no protection or firewall. That is one reason why these spammers are hard to find, because they use many other peoples PCs to launch their attacks. Nice info RR.

    I think oblivious should be the word of the day today!
