I received an undeliverable notification yesterday. Grrrr. I didn't send any email. A worm, or bot or something was sending out links to a site for viagra. OH JOY !! Of course no virus software can find it, microsoft has no suggestions. I have deleted the yahoo account I have had for over 15 years.

Changing all my info at all my sites is ANNOYING to say the least. I am not a very happy camper today. But at least the storms are gone !!!!!!!!

What, you're saying you didn't send out information for viagra?

This is why I can never remember my passwords and DH keeps asking me not to e-mail them!

To much viagra, is known to cause memory loss. Sorry I couldn't resist. hehehhe.

Nopers not me, don't need any viagra. My 78 year old Aunt was very shocked when she opened that email. Then even more so when all of her friends started emailing her about getting viagra links LOL.

And yes, I am still alive. Thankfully she lives in Indiana......... hehehehe. Or my being able to breath our sweet air would be very questionable. ( Yeah I have mean old Aunts, but ya gotta love them, they don't take no crap from anyone. )

That is the WORST...the absolute WORST. You take a trusted friend (like your beloved computer) and he turns on you. :( So sorry you are having to deal with all the repercussions of something like that.

So sorry! Not only is it a pain to get things reset but the feelings of being violated are horrible. So glad you got it straightened out though.
