Hi,

In case you store stuff on your computer that is very important to you,
thought you might like to read this information as a caution:

< http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CryptoLocker >

The above article has some useful references at the bottom that might
give you more information too.

It seems quite horrible that a person would stoop so low to rob. And the
best way to avoid being a victim is to keep a backup on REMOVABLE media
(CD-R, DVD, external USB thumb or hard drive, etc.) which if still
writable is attached only during time of backups. Micro$oft in their
wisdom has aided and abetted in this robbery with later versions of Windows.

In addition, don't open email attachments unless you know the writer and
he/she describes the attachment.

Have a (computer) safe day,

Don AE5K
