yea thats right logiks..


thats what i meant..

you open the email, then it provides a link to click on .. then the virus downloads to your comp..



usually, you can sopt these a mile off and your email will pick it up as 'dangerous' and warn you not to open , but this look pretty fuckin genuine to be fair.

i thought i was getting a free laptop coz someone had put my address by accident, nearly clicked on it ..

then remembered my dad saying something bout a UPS virus ..



anyway ..

both the french and german governments have put out warnings about using IE, apparently it is a lot more susceptible to viruses than other browsers

is there a way to access a favourties column in firefox
bookmarks...

but also, u have a "Most visited" drop down top left, mine has "Facebook" "albumwash" "dnb forum waffle" "hotmail" and thats about it. lol.

but u can also drag sites to be buttons along the menu bar, which is handy as fuck
