thanks for the support guys!
I don’t use IE much anymore anyway, I prefer Opera for browsing, and Firefox for most of the rest.
We already have a hardware firewall, too. SO I was surprised. I think that email was the cause of the problem. Some little attachments in the email.
I did have a program try to install something when I was browsing with firefox, but that stopped it in its tracks.
Yes, email is the most likely cause.
I’d love to try LInux, but have NEVER successfully got one working, even with help and time. They do work, but no sound, poor graphics, etc… mostly these are problems of configuration, but I don’t have the patience to sit throw a large manual of switches to trouble shoot something I have no understanding of. Now if I had a system already running perfectly, I might be encourae dto go the other way… But it’s not been worth it so far.
What about Linspire? Is that any good?
Just think that Linux is beyond my skill level at the moment.
