Congrats on still having a job. I'm glad it is the guy with blinders who got robbed rather than you.
Now I have a question that is bugging me. I ditched Norton, it strikes me as spyware, and installed Zone Alarm yesterday.
I keep getting messages that it is stopping what seems to be hacker attempts from...my own IP address. Strange?
But my computer seems to be thoroughly hijacked for the past several years. You would need a few drinks to listen to why.
how tight do you have your security settings on? is windows firewall and antivirus (Vista) running also? they cause probs too if you are running a secondary AV an firewall. only run one. i personally like ZA myself. ive always thought they did a good job and theyre not a resource hog. Norton is the most common and gets hijacked easily. im not going to tell you it wasnt an attack but ive seen so many cases where it was the firewall just picking up EVERYTHING. if it was then it was more than likely an amateur. i personally dont use anything. fyi....stay away form the porn sites (pointing at you) ha ha
