This is just a note to say I found a worm this morning on my computer (it's too early right now to get help with it.) It came with downloading a tainted font. (A year ago everything came to a stop for mewith a virus from a tainted link. )It may very well be that this time roundI will have to stop using the internet completely, soI just want to say a big thank you for being so generous with your knowledge, and such goodfun. lol Canna.

Canna...Come on now. I have had 2 hard drives wiped out by malignant virus @#$%^&!!!! that found it's way into my computer. I did manage to find software to recover all my pictures , though. I carried on. Migrating away from all your kinfolk here at Steve's can't possibly help in any way shape or form. Even if your computer gasps and rattles out it's last feeble beeps, why...do what must be done, namely reformat, reinstall and install Norton anti virus, or Norton internet security, and continue to post up a storm. How will you ever find out if we tried your fabulous recipe?? How will we know you're safe from the snails and, and...those other things that you photographed so bravely on your window? No. Leaving the forum isn't the answer. Hope you restore your computer to good health, and that we see more of your posts. Best regards.

Hi folk,

I'm intensely embarrased to say I'm back. Friend has checked out computer now. Not a worm (:-xto all worms), just very weird blips caused by me (turning my computer on and off lots, when it likes to stay on.) I wish I hadn't said anything now, but I hate it when people just disappear from forums without trace, so thought I would put up a note.

Thank you for kind messages :-). I have security stuff, but have also had bad experiences (one virus, and twice lost everything on the computer...), so operate in the more serious zones of paranoia where computer probs are concerned.

My break tho' gave me more time with Real Life - & I realised I must be a bit more disciplined with pix stuff, so maybe no bad thing.lol, Canna.
