But I made it to work on time just had not had any coffee before writing this post. PS: Thank you to the guys who wrote me personally about the virus warning notice. It relieved my mind to know it was just from posting here. As the guys at work said - Norton rules, Macafee drules. Norton always catches the virus, Macafee never did. I have proof from January.
