If you think of a server like a building, you start to get the picture. Sites are like apartments. If one site is infected with a virus or malware, it can spread to the other sites on that server just as roaches can spread from one apartment to another, even if you keep your apartment spotless and spray for bugs daily.

Links are like an invitation to visit an apartment. If you click on the link, invitation accepted and off to visit you go. Once there, you're fair game for the virus or malware. Just like if you visit Messy's apartment, you may pick up a few roaches by accident and transfer them to your home, even though you don't live in Messy's building. YUK!

That's why you keep your anti-virus and anti-malware software up to date and scan frequently. And why you keep external backups of important files.

If you ever get that message, or a warning that the site you're about to access has or is linked to a site that has dangerous files, close your browser and run your anti-virus and anti-malware software. It's better to be safe than sorry! Way to go, MQ!

Removing my data security badge and returning to normal life, whatever that's supposed to be!
So right you are, a virus can be picked up any where. I have had to have that fixed so many times.

Congrats on the broadband PAMom! You will love the faster service.

Thanks for the info YoYo! I am extra careful because computers are essential for my job (though the Mac's are less likely to get infected than my home PC.) I didn't think the DIS had a virus, but with all the links and signature avatars you never know what someone else brought into the house.

I didn't knew you changed over there. So we should fall back in the next 3 weeks.

Here in the U.S., clocks go back the first weekend in November (officially, 2am on that Sunday). Used to be last weekend in Oct. but they changed it a few years back.

Morning all! Another rainy day here, imagine that!! It's warmed up, though...I actually had to open a couple windows last night because it was getting stuffy in here.

Good morning, thank you for letting me know. I thought last year it was late November they had us change it. Why can't they let it go. Makes no difference other than driving us all crazy.

LegoMom... you aren't the only one with dreary weather. But I'm kind of enjoying ours. Seem to be enjoying the cleaning more today.
