There is a new Trojan program making the rounds, which is sent via e-mail with the spoofed (phony) e-mail address windowsupdate@microsoft.com, but really contains a program that downloads another program designed to connect to a Russian Web site.

Don't be fooled by this hoax. Microsoft does not send updates via e-mail. For more info about this new threat, see:

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
