Why don't you chat with her darlin' ... and let me know how you make out?
Rats, you guys are making me miss the debate. Oh well.
Will now go in and check out my Windows Defender. Heaven knows what I'm supposed to do when I get in there. Will have to see.
I don't think that there's any danger of a virus bomb but it's better to be safe than sorry.
You could always open up a free email port at Yahoo and redirect her email posting there .
You could purchase a better security suite for short money.I picked up Avast for two years for about forty dollars and so far it works very well .
Okay ... thanks guys for your suggestions (techie ones, that is!) Found out what the trouble was.
My Windows Defender was working fine, but the Windows Firewall was turned *off*.
Just got this infernal machine back from the shop not long ago. $178.00 worth later, had to take it back one more time ... because they had to twiddle a wire in order to let me access my keyboard again after they had worked on it ... aaaargh!
Finally got it in working order again, but didn't even think to check out my security stuff.
Whew! ~ ABC
