AVG users please beware,reading another posting I realised that I probably downloaded the SWEN virus this afternoon in what I thought was a microsoft update email(I had recently been updating my 98me and didn't think!)even though I had not had any adverse symptoms.Maybe because I had not rebooted since opening the email.There was NO indication from my AVG that I had a virus.As advised on the posting I looked at the Symantec site and ran there test and it found it.I ran there free download fix and have removed it.Shows it pays to read this site!!

Never downloads microsoft 'updates' via e-mail. Microsoft don't send e-mail about updates. I use AVG but alwayd be aware of what is in e-mails.
