Excel is a office program that is good for adding numbers up and stuff. Its ausome program you put like formulas in it so it automically totals the numbers up. Good for like adding expenses and stats. So buck did this virus hit you too?

hehe...you didn't check the PC World forums close enough. I posted an alert concerning Sircam (http://www.pcguide.com/ubb/Forum1/HTML/000214.html) a month ago. Before it was over with, I was sent 5 copies. Fortunately I didn't open any of them, soon as I saw the dual extension I knew something was wrong.

Actually it seems to be dying down at this point, when I checked last night it wasn't posted on Symantec's (http://www.symantec.com/avcenter/vinfodb.html) list of current threats. Still isn't tonight. When I first got it, I think it was in the top 5 on the list. That doesn't mean it isn't still on the loose though...

Its always a honor for you to reply paleo. I think its only been one time you have replied to my post and it was my 1st post,kinda lucky huh?
Yeah the email that i got the virus from was down for about a month. So I check the date on the email with the virus and it was like july something.But thats a great way to start getting your email again by getting a virus right when it starts working again.
