    eesh, almost another one

    I "almost" got another trojan.
    I restarted the computer in the middle of the download.

    Action:
    ctrl+alt+delete twice really fast in a row.

    Q:
    Do you wish to resume the download before shutting down?

    A:
    No.
    The world is waiting. I must leave you now.

    How could you tell?
    Code:
    if( numeric_limits< byte >::digits != bits_per_byte )
        error( "program requires bits_per_byte-bit bytes" );
    24bbs.cpp

    I was checking my mail, went to delete a message I didn't care for ( hm, i wonder ) and I saw the pretty little file copying dialog box come up.
    I forced it to stop pretty much.
    I clicked on it, then deleted it immediately ( it got sent to my deleted items folder ), now, since I clicked on it, it downloaded.
    I restarted, force restarted immediately after...the close programs box came up, interupting the file transfer dialog box, asking me if I wanted to shut down / restart before the download was finished.

    I canceled the download, restarted, went back into my mail program, and exited.
    ( I have the program set to deleted messages out of the deleted items folder automatically when exiting )

    Click on it, send it to deleted folder by hitting deleted button on keyboard.
    Ctrl+alt+delete twince in a row really fast.
    Do you wish to resume download before restarting?
    No.

    What program do you use to check your mail? Outlook I assume? Turn off the preview pane. Now you can click on messages without the virii infecting your computer. (Single click)

    Ahh, thank you DC, I could never figure that out.
    I don't use outlook all the much for anything, so if I see something suspicious, I just don't touch it.

    I have outlook as tweaked out as I'll get it now..
