i received an e.mail from a stranger who seems to think i sent him a Virus.I've heard they can be sent through your pc,checked mine and appear to be virus free.I also have pc-cillin firewall,is it possible someone is sending one through me.

Yup that's possible, misty2, but also check your own PC with an anti-virus package, AVG click here for example. Also be careful of opening emails of that type, they can contain viruses themselves.

Just re-read your post, misty2. It's unlikely that they will be being sent from your PC by someone else, rather they will be being sent from someone who has your email address in their address book. Some viruses do that.
