Guys be very careful out there some nasty Trojan viruses out there. I got one called Anti Virus 2009. My McAfee security system was completely fooled. The virus by-passed it an alerted me that I MIGHT(that's the hook) need to download some corrective measures to combat this . It even put up a false message deleting a virus. It was an Ad ware Trojan asking me to buy Microsoft anti virus software.
With Microsoft's help I scanned my files and the virus was deleted. It took 4 hours to scan and remove my files. I'm sure the computer savvy guys on the board will chime in here. I was not charged by Microsoft to do this.
There are a lot of viruses attached to videos. Time to get a dual platform Mac. FishHawk
