today April 1 a new virus is to be launched, it is the conficker virus, to check if you have it log on to you virus scan site, if you can't get on you may be infected, also if you are up to date with microsoft updates you are most likely ok. Using a virus scanner may pick it up if it is up to date as well, But to be sure go to the attached link http://www.cgbtech.com/alert.php On the news they said you need to he this patch e-mailed to you to install it if you do find out you have it. good luck and sorry I wish this was a joke, What i have read about this is that it gets passwords and sensitive materials such as account numbers. I run a virus scanner full time. and even with that some can get through via watching movies on sites such as youtube, alway run a scan on a time schedule, I run my scan at night and have it to scan on down loads and uploads, as well as e-mails.
