sorry to hear that Wrigler, did you have antivirus software?

Keep a regular backup of your important files (on floppy, zip disk, writeable CD, tape, another hard disk, etc.)

Be very suspicious of any attachment that has any of the following file extensions and DO NOT click on the files that end with:
.exe .vbs .scr .vbe .com .bat .shs .cpl .dll .ocx .pif .drv .lnk .bin .sys .eml .nws
