Good to see you're so conscientious with it!

They estimate around 15,000 computers have been infected in the UK alone (the users will be unaware that they are infected).

Let's hope some of them are as switched-on as you are.

It pays to be careful - so much hassle if you do get infected! I'm running it on my desktop now. - Mr G's next - but he's watching the cricket  ;D

Didn't realise McAfee were still issuing stinger, always found it quite good for serious issues when worked in PC Support 10 or so years ago. ;D  Mind you, if your antivirus and antimalware software is up to date, shouldn't really have an issue.
