Ok, call me a sucker - or a fish, I fell for it hook line and sinker! My sincere apologies to all for the "VIRUS ALERT" I mailed out. I have since emailed a retraction (about 2 seconds later). It was a hoax and I fell for it! The good news is if, like me, you deleted the file in question, it can be recovered. Here is the link from Norton about this hoax and how to restore the file. Again, I'm really sorry, but I felt it best to err on the side of caution. Yes, I know I should have known better, and next time I'll do a search on Norton's page before I jump the gun.


Here's the link:

(Yes, I know, I should know better - hanging head in shame)

Basil -

That's the second time this happened to you, you wanker! images/icons/grin.gif


Look, seriously...

In the future you can check with the virus software people by going to their websites

Heck, you can drop me an e-mail if you want to.
I'd be happy to check it for you.

Use my private e-mail addy though:
