ALSO Users of all versions of Windows XP and earlier should consider replacing their computers with new ones that run Windows 7 or Windows 8 as Microsoft will no longer be supporting Windows XP as of April 2014 - all earlier versions of Windows are currently unsupported.
Lastly Due to increasing spamming Internet Partners will no longer pass email messages containing zipfile attachments. Instead, if someone e-mails you a zip file you must save it to your desktop and RENAME it to have a .zip extension BEFORE you can extract it. Too many viruses today are propagating by emailing copies of themselves to victims gleaned from the computer they infect, the virus is placed in a password protected zipfile and the password is put in the spam, along with a "come on" message designed to entice the user to open the zipfile. The password protection prevents antivirus scanners from scanning for the virus.
