Hello?

Computer virus made me mad once in a while.

It cuts off telecommunication and leaves programs spoiled.

A couple days ago, virus attacked my computer. Have you ever been attacked? What do you usually do to prevent it ? I 'd like to know your story.



Thanks

Firstly you need to install Norton Antivirus 2003 for automatic scan your incoming and outgoing emails, also you can scan your whole hard driver by Norton Antivirus.
Then keep update it weekly.
Also you can use free online virus scan: http://housecall.trendmicro.com/housecall/start_corp.asp

Good Luck ! Very Happy
