I saw the thread earlier about rewinding CDs and DVDs. :-)

Great except I think that came from Fred Langa in the first place. In the same newsletter it was mentioned that Microsoft has a Beta version of an antispyware type program.

I run Adaware and spybot but have just downloaded from the above url and run it.

Generally I don't advise running Beta software. Try it if you want to.

If you are using a pirated copy of MS Windows it may not run.

Thank you for telling me about that.
I happen to have a life and went down to Wellington to see Family for a few days.

So I missed it all when it scrolled off.
Sorry to offend you.

I have kept this one on and am testing.

Can I post my results when I have them?

No need to get all bent out of shape about it. It's naive to expect that something that significant that's been out for some time had not been covered.
