Well, the fact that I'm running XP Home Edition is a testament to that statement. Such a "user-friendly" operating system I've never seen in my life. And every time there's an error, the computer asks if it can send the error information to Microsoft. But when you read the whole discaimer, it states, amidst the legaleze, that your non-system information (name, address, phone, credit card numbers, bank account PIN numbers, SS number, finger-print topography, and DNA sequence) will be sent to Microsoft as well.

And I got 57 more of that same email, which made my inbox 126% full.

That one has a name: WIN32.Swen.A
It's a mail-worm that comes cloaked as support-mail from Microsoft. As far as I know they offer help on their site.

Freude, schöner Götterfunken, Tochter aus Elysium,
Wir betreten feuertrunken, Himmlische, dein Heilighthum!
Deine Zauber binden wieder, was die Mode streng getheilt,
Alle Menschen werden Brüder, wo dein sanfter Flügel weilt.

Don't post off-topic, Radiant. IMAGE(Spiderweb Software Boards Hurricane Isabel (2)_files/tongue.gif)

I wonder, what is worse? A virus, or a natural catastrophe? IMAGE(Spiderweb Software Boards Hurricane Isabel (2)_files/tongue.gif)
