    Hi,

    Note: I never type my credit card number on my computer. I just heard
    the news about a survey on a group of home and business computers. "80
    percent of the computers tested had active spyware running". Key loggers
    that record your keystrokes is a major part of spyware.

    Before you type your password, credit card number, etc.,
    be sure there is no active key logger (spyware) in your PC.

    Fine - what else is on your computer?

    CNet News Com had reported that last Sunday, NewsScan Daily, on Monday,
    and it was then reported by the RISKS-LIST: Risks-Forum Digest on Monday
    morning as well. The report actually was on a study done by AOL and the
    National Cyber Security Alliance.
