Net Infected? Protect Yourself!
Auguest 10, 2001
Allright netizens, I am now getting over 8 viruses in my
main email box daily! This doesn't even count some of my
abandoned accounts that get over 80 junk emails per day and
who knows how many viruses! My main point is that all
the viruses I get are from you guys the visitors. 99% of viruses
that affect normal people like you and me are Win32 worm viruses.
Some of these little critters look into your mail box (AOL,
Outlook, Eudora, etc) and email everyone within your contact
list. It makes it look like you sent the message and unfortunately
fools much of your family and friends. Although I know better
then most, the email attachmnet in which the virus is housed
in can be huge. It increases my download time by a huge amount
of time. Sometimes it shuts down the mail server and I get
no mail! Now for the cleap up...
Unfortunately there is NO totally free and decent anti-virus
scanning/combating tool. But luckily for many of you we found
a site that is offering McAfee a high quality product in this
area for free and legally because of the recent net virus
epidemic. Your probably thinking that I already said that
there is no free and decent anti-virus software. Well guess
what this product has a catch, you have to pay for the shipping!
Which is only $6.95 and much cheaper then the actual cost
of the software.
