- I made sincere apologies to that list, and immediately unsubscribed,
to see if I being a member of that list had been the cause of the
virus attack. During this small time period, I and all the members of

resubscribe later to see what in the heck happened, and how long it
will affect their list. I do not pay for internet access, my brother
Mike does, and someone is apparently using his email address to
spread a virus! He will be informed and shown this. I also showed him

have anti-virus software installed and updated and then use windows quickview
function to check it out first.
