Just a heads up on klez - klez will appear to come from someone you know, will take words from mail in your inbox. This just means that someone on that has ffcars.com in their mailbox has klez. Klez is *NASTY* in this way. Heck, I've gotten mail addressed to me with klez that appeared to come from me. Since I happen to use Linux, it's not very likely I've got klez :D

This would be a good time to remind everyone to install, use and keep updated a good anti-virus program on their computers.

and to be suspect of wierd email sources, LIKE YOURSELF.

and to NOT OPEN executables from unknown sources or known sources when the message or subject just does not make sense.

McAffee ?
I have opened e-mails with the Klez virus or worms and Norton or not...if I open that suspicious e-mail it is already too late.
Norton will quarrantine the little ones but the worms are deadly. I hate hackers !!

McAffee virus detection software scans email and attachments as they are downloaded to the inbox. It detects the virus before you open the email. I would also suggest you set your email option to NOT open or display attachments automatically.

Jim...are your definitions updated? Norton stops Klez cold when you have a recent version and current updated definitions.
