      > Eve, you certainly need to repair the AUTOEXEC.BAT file and the REGISTRY because that's what this virus infects. It's not hard to do as long as you are EXTREMELY careful when altering the REGISTRY. This can be done manually or, there are are couple of good sites which gives you an executable file which will fix it automatically. I preferred the manual method. Take a look at the following sites :

      > John, I went to Peterhead this week and got you the following information :
      >
      > Edith Violet Kemp Died May 29th.1981 aged 76 in Woodend Hospital, Aberdeen
      > Her normal residence was 48 Windmill Street, Peterhead.
      > Her date of birth was February 20th.1905.
      > Her parents were Charles Joseph Cave (Gardener) & Mercy? Mann
      >
      > William Alexander Kemp Died December 11th.1982 aged 74 at 48 Windmill Street, Peterhead.
      > His date of birth was April 13th.1908.
      > His parents were Peter Kemp (Shipwright) and Mary Ann Alexander.
      >
      > They are buried in Lair E1666 in Balmoor Cemetery, Peterhead and I'm told there is a headstone (although I didn't go up to see it). If you are ever in Peterhead, if you go into the middle gate of the Cemetery it's along on your right.
      > There is no one else buried in the Lair according to the Registrar.

      > Malcolm, I went back up to Peterhead this week and took a close look at the headstone. It actually says :

      > George Simpson sometime master of the Traveller of Peterhead died at Stetten on September 11th.1848 in his 51st. year of his age and interred there.
      >
      > So, looks like he is buried at Stettin in the Baltic in spite of what the Peterhead burial records say. As you will probably know, the Baltic trade figured largely with Peterhead for many years so this is not really surprising.
