I thought I had it bad. I'm up to 414 viruses at about 62 megs this
month (doesn't count some new "screensaver.exe" that started this week,
filesize=33K). Luckily my ISP has a web mail interface now. I just go
on there, scan the headers (w/sizes) and delete and purge all viruses
and SPAM, then go into Mozilla mail and get the good email. It has
lowered my email DL time from about 2-4 hours a day to about 30 mins.
Since I'm in eCS-OS/2, BeOS or Linux 99% of the time and never go online
in Win anything it is only the aggravation of wasted time & bandwidth
that worries me per the viruses.
