I posted the message for exactly the reasons in the original posting. Surely
I cannot be held responsible for the resulting furore? I can only speak for
myself, but I think there have been some rather intersting replies regarding
this issue.

I fully agree with the sentiment coming from both yourself and Sam, that its
time to move on to something else... Again may I thank all of you for the
advice. I must have been very lucky not to have encountered many of these
viruses before, as in the four or so years I have been using the net, this
may well be the first...

Hopefully this can mark the moving on...
