There is a nasty PC virus going round at the moment, and it is affecting millions of PC running Windows. You can read more about it here:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/7832652.stm (hyperlink below)

Make sure you do the following:

1) Run "Windows Update" and install all the Windows fixes you can. This problem was "fixed" by Microsoft in October last year so if you are up to date with Windows Update you should be covered.

2) If you have not got any anti virus software then install one (there are plenty of free AV products around).

Download the lates virus "update" from your company then run the anti virus.

If possible set your anti virus to run every day at the same time.

If you DONT do these things then you are leaving your PC wide open for a serious attack from this virus which may result in a complete reinstall of windows.

It is easy to sneer, and maybe your computer is secure, but there are millions of computers around the world that are not.

If computers were secure the virus would not spread.

I bet millions of people dont EVER run Windows update or put the latest Windows service packs on.

I bet millions of people dont have anti virus software installed.

Instead of making sarcastic remarks I am trying to help people.

After all, the news item says:

"Infections of a worm that spreads through low security networks, memory sticks, and PCs without the latest security updates is skyrocketing".

Windows update (in my experience) tends to do a lot more damage than any virus i've ever had :lol:

How is this any more urgent today than it was yesterday or two months ago or two years ago? Stating the obvious IMO.
