I got a .scr attachment the other day, no harm done because I deleted it. I've been getting heaps of other virus type things as well lately, one with an attachment something along the lines of fun.mp3.pcf. Straight to trash can for these babies. Thanks for the warning though.

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.
