Thanks for the feedback, Susan.  Shows how much I have to learn, I
guess.  Comments anyone else?

Yes you can have damaged boot records and not even know it. Matter of 
fact what i found was that you can lots of damaged anything and not evn 
know it. Hacking is more than a hobby to some, its a corporate affair 
with apparently many hours spent in development. Many hack progs seem 
very very legitimate. They can use trojan replacements for windows 
.exe's that appear normal but run streams from other progs. If I didn't 
build websites myself and have a bit of experience prior I would have 
never noticed the teeny 1 pix windows opening up that were shipping our 
mail around the world. Catching that originally and having from 
experience used that trick myself on websites to open new pages... 
seemingly from nowhere to the average user...

Hi, all.

I've been following discussions here for about a month and most of it is
far over my head.  It's a learning experience and I've got a lot to
learn.

However, I'm really confused about Susan's message here.

I run a small business network that's almost 100% Microsoft....
