Dealing with junkmail

Protecting yourself from Viruses
Modern viruses use Outlook Express to send viruses and personal information via e-mail to your friends and others without the sender even clicking, thereby propagating itself and slowing your 'Net speed in the process.

You are guaranteed be infected by a virus if you don't:
1. Have anti-virus software
2. Keep the anti-virus software up-to-date. Usually, new anti-virus definitions are released weekly.

Suggested anti-virus software:
- "Norton Anti-Virus" ($30-50), download at http://www.symantec.com/nav/
- "AVG Anti-Virus" (FREE), download at http://www.grisoft.com/
