    Any questions at all, please let me know. Also, once you install it, I would like to explain the very simple process of defeating the program sign on ad.

    Re: Virus Checkers

    Hey, thanks Bruce! I'll give it a look. Maybe it was you who mentioned it somewhere here in the Lounge. Being an old guy, with CRS, I can never be sure.

    Actually it was MerC who mentioned it in post 156591:
    <hr>For the real paranoics, using an e-mail client like Popcorn or Mailwasher before OE gets its sticky lines of code on your mail, lets you read the headers on the mail server without downloading anything potentially dangerous on to your system. That way you can delete anything suspicious (and spam) before it gets to you. Kinda like searching the postman at the end of the avenue.<hr>
    Mailwasher works with independant and thus w/ any client. It allows you to view in text format from server b-4 downloading and to actually bounce <img src=/w3timages/censored.gif alt=censored border=0> <IMG SRC=http://www.krymow.com/images/icon_spam.gif>. Read over the thorough FAQ I sent you. It might well suit your needs. I personally think it is not worth the trouble, but then I like to pretend I am pretty careful (knock on wood)and don't get much spam, either.

    I have 'Sometimers' as opposed to CRS.

    Re: Virus Checkers

    Jeez, that was only a couple of days ago. My CRS is really getting bad!

    Like the guy on Murphy Brown used to say: "All's I know is...." I found another one of dem Klez thingies waitin' for me in my Inbox when I got up this morning. FORTUNATELY, I had re-installed McAfee for the time being and this is what I saw. (This attachment is a 320x240 GIF of a screen capture - no danger folks. I've also rescanned for safety)

    Al ~

    Really can't see the window. Can you capture just the alert window and edit your post, please?

    Also, Al, I certainly mean no disrespect, but are you stubborn or just worried about AVG? You haven't addressed any of the posts that have mentioned repeatedly that you have nothing to worry about until you activate a file. Your remark about scanning a screen capture for viral load lends an air of misunderstanding regarding that.

    Re: Virus Checkers

    No offense back at ya, Bruce, but either my grammar is crappy or YOU aren't understanding the TWO separate concerns. I thought I had made my UNDERSTANDING clear in previous posts. If I'm wrong about this someone should correct me. There are viruses (worms!) that DO NOT NEED YOU to do anything but receive the email. Those viruses that do come to you in the form of an attachment to the mail - you're right, you can't be harmed unless you open or execute the attachment. I still see this as two separate problem. If you don't, or if I'm wrong in my understanding of scum bags, we might as well shelve it, 'cause we aren't getting anywhere.

    I'll attach the smaller, McAfee window to this post for what little it's worth.

    Lighten up on me, Bruce. I was just trying to be funny in my remark about the screen capture!
