[APD] RE: Viruses and worms

  One thing that I've found to eliminate the sharing of viruses, etc. w. ppl in 
my Outlook (Express) Adress Book is to create a contact that consists of four 
zeros (0000).  I don't remember who told this to me, but the premis was that 
the virus searches your Adress Book until it doesn't find any; and, because 
0000 would be first, the virus thinks ther aren't any addresses.
  Give it a try - I've never had problems with it.

>>Some one that has the APD email address in their address book is 
infected with one or more viruses and/or worms.  This IMHO is 
inexcusable.  Running a computer without up to date anti-virus software is 
akin to sky diving without a parachute or like removing the front door to 
your house and piling your valuables right inside the door.<< 

Tell me about it... I am getting over 600 SPAM emails a DAY now. About half 
is from peoples infected computers that has me in their address book, and 
the other half is porn and well...male enhancements if you know what I mean!
