Just a word of caution the new virus in town is called Sasser you do not have to open a email or go to a a dodgy website it can strike just as you connect to the web. Make sure your virus and firewalls are up to date you can also get a patch from the Microsoft web site.........

Here is some more info i got this from my virus news at f-secure. New automatic internet worm known as Sasser has been found. This worm exploits the new LSASS vulnerability in Windows 2000 and XP systems. It's not destructive. Generates traffic at ports 445, 5554 and 9996.
It slows your computer down.
