    .I've just realized today that the last three times I've been hit by trojans....
    all have been within a few minutes after a windows update.
    ..Oops..That may be wrong.....it could also be a particular mail site too--[the site itself, not an email]

    ...What do you make of this??

    ..Ah MSN....aren't they great?? lololol
    We had an eight year old computer running windows 95 ..no msn ISP....for the last 4 years we had that computer, we never got a virus or trojan.
    ..Two months ago we got this new puter, installed MSN as ISP ....
    we've been hit 4 times with trojans and viruses in that two months
