Threaded View

In addition to avoiding the use if Internet Explorer, it's now
advisable to disable viewing thumbnail images. See the Workarounds
section under "Mitigating Factors and Suggested Actions" at

Hi Dave.

Please keep us posted on this.

Hackers are generally only very weakly motivated by conventional rewards
such as social approval or money. They tend to be attracted by
challenges and excited by interesting toys, and to judge the interest of
work or other activities in terms of the challenges offered and the toys
they get to play with.

Beg your pardon? If anyone is a Troll it would be you and not Dave. All anyone
needs
to do is look at your postings with your offering of pirated software at times
and
your ignorance that your site has one or more infectors in some of your
available
links in alt.comp.freeware.
Probably I will also be a Troll now after this post which is addressed to you

and following the links to find out about the workaround.

I had to disable the Thumbnails here on my W2K3 W2K8 Enterprise a while ago. I
found
that it was throwing up false positives continually with my Norman Enterprise AV.
Once I disabled the Thumbnail view option the false positive stopped.
Just my 2 cents
