    Hey...Ranald...my son & his son are the only ones I know that have Skype. I also know that you do, too. What are you going to do about this problem? One must stay ahead of all these threats! (tongue in cheek response..??!!!!) Joan

    IJoan, as you say I do have Skype, but never seem to use it.

    Only this week they sent me a message to say that my credit would stop. Actually is does not stop, as if you logon and use the progam... the credit returns !!!

    Heh Ranald:

    I think I got caught! Was suspicious about the behavior of Skye on the back-up computer and unloaded the program. Ran a scan and sure enough two trojans. Ran a boot scan and got them cleaned out. The machine seems clean! I hope!!!
    Anyway, thanks for the warning even if belated.

    Best, Lizzie.
