well i had a worm......blast that Benjamin......KaZaa gave it to me......DO NOT USE KAZAA WITHOUT A UPDATED VIRUS-PROTECTION PROGRAM RUNNING......it sticks copies of files in ungodly hard to find places......took up atleast a gig of HD space....AND it slows overall performance of your PC.....THIS was my problem....dont get it yourself....it will be too late when you notice it

Kazaa is a wonderful program but it does not control what virus's can sneak in.

If you don't want to die up your system's resources with virus protection. Here is a nice online scanner. Updated regularly it works great if you have a fast connect. Takes a bit with 56k.

I am really pleased with grokster.    It runs just like the original morpheus and I seem to have a lot more luck with file transfers.

Tracer, I got one last week myself, but it was the Klez virus. This bastard actually deletes anti-virus files!
   As of now, I'm looking at a total reformat/new system install.

Funny thing is... Although I know better than to open attachments from people I don't know, I thought this one was TOD orders with an attached map, like I've gotten before. I don't know AH players' real names, so this one really caught me offguard.
