So far everything I've learned about viruses I've learned the hard way. I too 
opened a file from a friend before I knew what it might be, and therefore 
sent a special package to everyone I Emailed after. I also clicked on a link 
once and got my account pirated for my trouble. Before it was over I was 
informed that "I" had sent over 1,000 emails all over the server. Probably 
porn invites.

There are a LOT of people online with nothing better to do with their time 
than annoy the rest of us. I don't blame the list or you Raisya. Stuff 

You might understand why I'm a little paranoid. I suggest we all be so.
