Thanks.

(Delete any spaces).

To prevent it, get yourself an antivirus program.

Whatever antivirus you use, be sure not to exclude the Recycle Bin as SirCAM hides there also.
Check out Virus Library for SirCAM for full details.
We use MCAfee Active Virus Defense on our network, check out the following URL for info on SirCAM.http://vil.nai.com/vil/default.asp

Wilders.org is also a good place to look for help.

I recommend going to www.bootdisk.com and download a program called f-prot antivirus. The dos version is free and it scans from floppies before windows loads allowing it to disinfect files that are in use by windows. You can update for free. Justfollow the directions about which files should be included on disk 1 and disk 2. If you need assistance, email me.
