    I was stupid one day and clicked one of those types of viruses. the message said "Check out this funny thing!" or something like that, so i clciked it, open, bam virus.
    The file type was .pif, but for some reason i thoguht it was a .gif.

    The virus opens up a ocnvo with everyone on the list that's online and sends that message that i received along with the file url. i realized what was happening and turned off my comp so i dont think it sent to too many people.

    But it wasnt this virus, it was something else, cant remember the name.

    funny thing is that my friends, who mknow nothing about computers, didn't click it. they all ask me "what's that?" first. so they were lucky.
    I'm just stupid.

    tsk tsk....rossco, you knew better
    now you guys know why I dont click anything at all
    God Himself could IM or email me....
    and I would ask Him to verify it

    I think I've clicked about 4 or 5 emailed links in my life,
    and those were all forum registration validations
    plus I don't spend hardly any time in IM apps,
    and none at all in MSN (yuk!)
