waking up

I woke up to a virus trying to get in through an email. Norton stopped it and quarantined it, but then the next time I tried to download the mail it was still there. This happened again and again so I could not get the mail through ordinary means. I updated all components of my Internet Security program, just to be safe, then restarted the computer, logged on through another provider, and went into the web-based email. From there I was able to delete the sucker for once and for all. No harm done, from what I can see, but I should run a virus scan later today just to be sure nothing got in.

It's certainly worth it to me to pay for the update service. I think I get email viruses a couple of times a week. It's likely I would not be opening them anyway, but it only takes one innocent little attachment.
