My Party VIRUS

It appears that my laptop has received a new email virus earlier this
afternoon.  It also appears to have sent this virus onto everyone in
my address book.
I have my antivirus software to get updates once a week and apparently
the timing was such that this virus hit me before I got the necessary
updated virus definitions.  Needless to say, I now have set my
antivirus software to get daily updates.

My apologies for any trouble this may have caused anyone.

Brian Cook sent me the following info that may be helpful.  Thanks

Sorry, Alan
