    his message said he "downloaded & saved" his updates,
    presumably from MS (though THAT he doesn't say), so what
    makes you think they are virus's?

    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 :)
