his message said he "downloaded & saved" his updates,
presumably from MS (though THAT he doesn't say), so what

Put "usenet" in the subject-line if you want to mail me, otherwise it will
bounce.
Do you use filesharing networks? If so, please visit my online poll:

by email....I've been getting about 200 a day and I know some people on here
have been getting more than that.......I think he must be on about the
virus's because he said they are taking up so much room.....If hes been
clicking on every email hes had about them then they will take up a lot of
room......as well as damaging his pc too

The plural of virus is viruses.
Apostrophes are mostly left out....not put in when not needed
(oh and is isn't virii either, sadly..)
