Jim: you mentioned that norton didn't catch some v's on your office system
so you dropped it for someother system. Would you care to tell me what
system you went to?? I had norton installed on my home computer some time
back after I had contracted a big V and it got to a few others before I
heard about it. the shop where I took my computer recomended it highly.I
read all these msgs. on this problem and wonder who is using what and how
good is it.I'm a genuine novice at this computer stuff, but I'm learning
little by little. I just can't afford to take my machine to the shop every
time it get's sick. hi ! hi ! Thanks for any info you can supply me with.
carl / kz5ca P. S. e-mail me direct if you'd like.
