    in this case free does work, just ask the people that use it ;)

    but if it makes you feel more comfotable, AVG aslso has a version for sale

    That's MyDoom. It's set to DDoS www.sco.com Feb 1 - Feb 12. There's a huge amount of politics and theories behind it though. Someone tested it (by resetting the date on their PC) and apparently it didn't work, although it could be a one-off case.

    the morning radio show here was talking about this today. They claimed there was a comment in the code that said:

    "I'm sorry, I'm just doing my job - Adam"

    Although I have yet to see that repeated anywhere else so I'm a bit skeptical.

    Quote from what I've seen:

    Buried in its programming code -- and only readable after it has been decrypted -- was also the message "Andy; I'm just doing my job, nothing personal, sorry" from the creator



    There's actually an interesting conversation happening over at Slashdot <a href="http://slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=04/01/28/1528213&mode=thread&tid=126&tid=128&am p;tid=172&tid=185&tid=190&tid=201" target="_blank">here</a> about all the theories and things behind it...

    Well, I found this at Symantec web site after folling the links in here.

    This document was updated on January 27, 2004 with a new version of the SymKBFix.exe file.

    Web address of: http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT...03093015493306

    If you read it, the directions sound like a game of "Round Robbin"! LOL

    I'll bet this whole thing has put a damper on Symantec, and it should. In a free enterprise system, you get your money from providing goods or services, and your income is gaugaged in how well the above is applied. I don't mind activation, I just don't think that puting someone's computer "at risk" while you work out the bugs is the right thing to do.

    I found it amazing how the worm W32.Novarg.A@mm spread around so fast. It even got on my system threw Kazaa, but didn't get to do anything. And the thing is I didn't even download anything besides legal music.

    Well, there's no viruses in my computer, but I certainly get a ration of them every day. This noon I opened up Outlook Express and got 15 messages 11 were viruses. Pretty sad ratio. Between the viruses and the junk spam mail, I get to read an ocassional GOOD piece of mail. LOL

    Reminds me of the commercial where this guy keeps pulling out toy after toy after toy from a cereal box, and finally found a small packet inside, which he opened and poured in his cereal bowl. *S*

    I never really liked NAV2004, the clunky user interface, is just horrible. I want a product that get's the job done, and that's it, I don't want more of my ram used up by "pretty colors"! But that activation, it was such a large hassle, that i didn't even care for it, i just took it off my machine. It's horrible.
