I can't think of a better reason why everyone should follow Tut#4 in the Tutorials Forum weekly in order to ensure that your computer is safe. If you haven't also followed the suggestions provided in Tut#3 for malware detection and prevention, you should do so asap.

Repa, thanks for the reminder, and the link. By necessity, I do all my banking online. I really love the convenience of it, but I am also aware of the pitfalls! I try my best to be safe, and it is good to get reminded ever so often!

Online banking has always scared me! This info just reinforces my fears! It WOULD be convenient for people like Rike, though.

Thanks for the link, Repa! Very Happy
