Well, if you haven't heard already, there is another virus ready to blast tomorrow(April 1st). If you use Microsoft then get the patch for this virus from Microsoft's site. Hopefully it's just a Bad April Fool's Day joke and nothing Bad happens. Good Luck to us all.

Well, Conficker C didn't hit April 1st but they say it is still in about 10 million systems. Just waiting for instructions, I guess. Crazy!

Hmmmm....since this is daily news videos, it looks like the Conficker C video is gone.

Thanks Terrie, I always find out about these things the after th fact. Lol! No virus, I am lucky.

I found out I should eat a low carb diet 40 years after diagnosis. No complications, I'm lucky.

I wonder how much longer my good luck will hold out? LOL!

Hi Richard: :)

Good to hear it. Our's seems to be Fine also, so far. My Hubby used the Malicious software tool and there are no viruses on our systems.

That virus is still out there but it hasn't been instructed by it's owner yet. It's a Baaad one. Bill Gates is offering $250,000.00 to anyone who can give info of the maker of the Conficker C virus. (I know! I know! ) j/k, of course. I don't know! I could use some spare cash. :D

Oh shucks Richard.....watch the news. When something Big is going on, it's all there on the news. :D


Ya, I know what you mean. Back then our Dr. didn't know much about Diabetes let alone anything about carbohydrates. The knowledge of carbohydrates hasn't been known for very long anyways. As long as we have our sugars in Good range most of the time, we'll be Fine Diabetes-wise. We have a better chance of dieing from getting hit by a chunk of "waste material" falling on us, from a plane. ROFL!! Hey, I heard it on the news. :D

Got this today....

Good morning Terrie. I got this message in my email today.

Dear Reader,
The new variant of Conficker/Downadup worm has received wide media attention and has been predicted to be the largest threat outbreak in several years expected to reach over 10 million desktops worldwide. Don’t let yourself be one of them...

We would also like to remind you to exercise caution and ensure that you have security software installed.

Awww Richard!! Didn't anyone tell you not to open email that you don't know who it's from because it could contain a virus or other unsavoury applications??

*Do you remember who the email was from? Microsoft doesn't send emails unless you send them one for info, etc.

*Did you use the Malicous Software Tool from the Microsoft site to check if you had the virus prior to opening the email?

*Did you download the patch from the Microsoft site before you opened the email?

*Do you have Firewalls at least? Of course, they won't help if you opened an email with a Virus in it without prior protection.

*If you have a Good virus scanner it will usually pop-up when a virus has been caught and quarantined.

*If you want to know if you have a Virus then go to:
Microsoft Corporation

*If you can't open that site, it probably means that you have the Virus. It blocks People from getting the patch(help) from Microsoft. That's it's first objective.

*If you didn't already get the Malicous Software Tool and the Patch from Microsoft then I'll be Happy to send it to you. It will get rid of the Virus or at least quarantine it so it won't be Active. Let me know Richard. Sorry, I just worry about you. ;)
