Sorry to repeat this thread, I meant to post it on the other one but hit the wrong button:
Seen the " I've been hit" post back up and just thought I'd say, "I've been hit BIG TIME" again. My computer kept running slower, popping up messages that I was running out of space on my hard drive. I kept deleting things but it didn't do any good. Finally I let my son take my computer home him so he could have time to check it out. He told me he found 1400 virus on it!!! He said he got rid of all but 75 of them, and he's still working on it Right now I'm using another computer. I had some protection on it, ( I thought) but obviously not enough. These guys that send this stuff out like that ought to whupped. Oh well, part of the world we live in today Steve..

Buy an Apple computer. Less security problems.

Just don't buy iTunes.. the DRM built into them is a move in the wrong direction. Avoid the iPod too, if possible..

Not to derail this topic, but check out yahoo music, 6 bucks for all the music you want. I downloaded 5 gigs of music the first day
