Tony:

I got a message a while back about a virus that had the cheek to disable
your anti-virus software before it started its dirty work.

I don't know if it's the same, but I've received several messages in the
last couple of weeks that my ISP has cleaned off something like BugBear32.
It's one of the things that my ISP has done right. They scan every email,
incoming & outgoing, and their dat file of virus signatures is updated
continuously. The owner says there's no such thing as a 100 percent
guarantee, but there have been a whole lot less problems since they put it
on line. (I haven't had a single blip, since, but I'm keeping my Macafee
loaded and continually upgraded as well, just in case ....)
