SPECIAL VIRUS ISSUE...
This month's newsletter repeats previous virus warnings... and discusses a VBS (Visual Basic Scripting) worm.
Love Letter and its variants...
This "worm" program is still going strong and comes as an email attachment. Don't open any email with com, exe, or vbs file attachment. Most Microsoft Office documents can also carry macro viruses.
Here is a link to a very good discussion of this particular "worm" and viruses in general. Virus Info
Here is another link to a downloadable file to remove the "I Love You" virus. This will remove the virus, but will NOT repair the files it destroyed. (This virus is a prime example of why you should ALWAYS have a CURRENT virus checker and a backup of important files.) I Love You Virus Remover
Always be careful...
SPECIAL !!! A NEW parallel port
IOMEGA ZIP100 drive. This is THE standard 100 megabyte capacity drive
and is perfect for moving those large files or saving those graphics.
Normally costing at least $99.95, I am selling one unit to the first client to
email me at MRingCNE@aol.com wanting it for only $69.95 (plus tax).
Our processor fan deal is still on... D & M Electronics, Inc. will sell you a replacement ball bearing (the best one, NOT sleeve bearings) Pentium Processor fan. (for a typical Pentium chip) for only $4.95 if you mention this newsletter. This is a $10.00 savings over Radio Shack's $14.95. This offer is good as long as supplies last and does not include installation. (We have several dozen in stock.)
That's it for this month... if you have a topic you would like me to discuss, just email me!
Until next time... Happy Computing !
