    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.

    I must be lucky, I've never gotten any of these worms. and my NAV 2004 Pro Update list just updated today, so I'm good for now.

    NAV doesnt stop me from getting them, it just detects if I have downloaded one or one is in my system.

    do you run a firewall?

    I have not been infected by a worm or virus in a long time mainly because of norton, agnitum outpost and my router.
    and a bit of common sense never goes a miss

    Nope, I don't really need one, cause I'm on dial up, and I feel my NAV 2004 Pro keeps me safe enough.
