  • About email carrying computer viruses. To everyone who has bookmarked pages from my site (which pages include my email address) or has corresponded with me, please take the time to learn about virus protection. I have a page on basic Windows Security information. Also try the virus info section at About.com. I receive an amazing amount of virus infected email, presumably from those of you who have my site bookmarked or who have added my address to your address book and who have been infected with a virus. To anybody who has received infected mail from me, please be aware that many viruses will fill in the “From” line of outbound infected mail with a random address found on the sender’s computer. The mail was not from me. Do not ever open mail with attached files unless and until you are sure it is from someone you know, and they have confirmed that they sent it and that it is virus-free.
