Chain emails, forward this to 10 feiends, etc...
To me it makes a big difference 2( who sent it, and 2) what is the content. If it is from one of my IT friends who has a similar politcal philosophy, I may very well forward it, BUT< if it is from one I know to be uninformed or lax in their security opr it represents a topic I don't support (of which they may be a number) I put it in that little round file that is so handy, lol. Love that delete button! And I'm very serious about MY security! I have a good , complete security suite that runs al, the time. I have several excellent cleaner programs (MalwareBytes, Lavesoft and others. I routinely do regular computer maintenance, disk clean, registry clean (I add and remove programs frequently to test them), defarg (I'm running XP Pro but will be upgrading to Win7 Ultimate 64 bit this summer). In addition to that I run full security scans with t least 3 products every month. I'm satisfied I have a clean computer! I built it. I maintain it regularly. And if I see any signs of possible malware, I do it anyway! I keep a clean and happy, fast computer, as do my IT friends. Incidentally, I learned to turn a computer on by myself in July '06. I month in I downloaded the SP2 for XP because I wanted to run streaming videos. Unknown to me, installing SP2 screwed up ones Windows. MS verified my Windows so I could install, the Sp2s. 3 days later <S shut me off the 'net, saying my Windows were pirated. 2 weeks prior, MS knew of this problem with their anti-piracy tool but still did it. I had to buy new XP Pro, $160 at the time, on sale. Now 5 years later I'n building them, doing ALL my own troubleshooting and repair, plus I'm fixing my friends computers. I'm thinking of hanging out a shingle!
