i made changes to internet explorer as you said and i have downloaded the programs you suggested. i found a wealth of information
on the sites and i thank you very much for all the information.
my computer seems to be working fine and now i know where to get help
should i ever get infected again-thank you.
i must say you are a very generous person to give of your time and talent
as you do.
i still have a lot of reading to do. i found the tutorial site very interesting and hope to visit there often.
if this is the last communication we will have then thanks once more.
bon chance (i think that is right)
