    Virus Warning PLEASE READ
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    she cannot get in here to post....its messed her system up pretty bad...she has asked me to post for her..here is her message

    So far 3 people have told me they received an email with "Kristi Haslock" In the subject matter. If you receive this delete it right away. It is a virus. It supposedly was sent from Webwizemom but not on my account I have no viruses on my computer but somehow someone sent to 2 people using my name. Please let me know if this has happened to you. I am contacting my ISP cuz these email were supposedly sent from me.

    Sorry about this!

    It's hard to tell, but it sounds like a worm. Worms get into your address book and sends itself to all those addresses. You don't have any knowledge of this until someone contacts you letting you know you've got a "worm". Sometimes, as with the last big one, the subject line is different everytime and it's actually a subject line from the actual sender, but contains the worm.
