WARNING TO ALL
Looked at the '17 new guest pages' and opened one of them as others may have done already. This then sent a malicous link, a trojan horse virus to my computer which  was detected by my virus software. The name of the downloaded file Pup.optional.seesimilar.A So what ever you do do not open this file You had all better run your virus detection software straight away as some if not all the 17 new members seem to carry this link. I there a way they can be deleted ? I have sent a email to the Site Administrator.

cheers Jaga.

Thanks for the warning Jaga! As Splinter said, "...likely not friends!"

Hi everyone - It's great to have everything sorted out once again and I would like to thank those wonderful people who I often refer to as a "Computer Whiz" to have ironed out the problem/s....Where would you start with this sort of thing?

Jaga - Thanks for the warning; fortunately I sensed something was wrong when I first saw this and didn't open anything as I've been caught by this sort of thing before on another site.

It's great to have it all working, and once again, thanks to those responsible.

All the best, Nev.

Jaga - It looks like you still have a gremlin in your computer and he's changed your name ?

All the best, Nev.

Nev we have to many shortened versions of our name so some how in a state of memory lapse put in the wrong one
It took my wife to even work out what you were on about to make matters worse.

correct one this time, Jaga - short for John and Agatha
