Hi Ray

I'm furious! I'm not party to your with Al and Bill. . Whatever the reason, they have now make a new enemy in me!

Believe it or not - I'm having all sorts of trouble after opening Al's emails. Thanks for the advise. Those I'll have to get my firewall to block their emails.

I'm using my old backup computer too. My friend is helping me sort out the latest attack. I'm surprised it got through my firewall and anti-virus prog. Trendmicro.

Will contact Trendmicro today.

And this leads to this :
