It was a Phishing alert. Forgot to mention that.

And now it's apparently not doing it as my Kaspersky has updated 25 minutes ago. But on the Phishing monitor it caught about 20 attempts as I was logging on. Looks like it's a google issue?

best of luck with the sysadmin stuff... I'm on-call this week for my IT job and it's rarely fun. My Firefox browser crashed frequently yesterday, on multiple PCs, and I upgraded them to the latest version (3.5, had been on 3.0.15). Both were on WinXP too... no problem with the Vista laptop. Can't be too careful...

I leave Firefox on automatic updates & never have a prob. Kaspersky is the best AV program I have ever used. I use Acronis True Image for backup. All those protective steps and I've never had to use any of it knock on wood. Knowing what programs to use and not to use is 99.99999% of safety!!

Been working with PCs since the IBM 8088 came out in 1980. Dad worked for IBM. It cost him $6000 with his 40% discount and had 2 5-1/4" floppy drives, 64K of ram, and an RGB monitor. I remember when Win 98B was rock solid. I used it until WinXP proved itself and I'll use it until W7 proves itself, or until I just don't have a choice, like when they discontinued giving updates for 98. Never even looked at Vista, why bother.
