CE - I am not getting any wrist watch spam and I started the thread! I don't think anyone's email is available through the public forums. Email addresses to my knowledge are stored securely behind firewalls.

I will report this post and see if Janet or Andy (our forum software gurus) have any thoughts.

You may want to check your system security settings and update your virus protection. You should not be receiving spam at our hands - but it sounds like you may have a keylogger or some other sort of malware on your computer that you need to obliterate. Anything that automatically embeds itself in your address book is likely to be baad news.

AVG free edition and AVG Anti-spyware does an excellent job of cleaning up malware and it is free.

http://www.filehippo.com/search?q=avg

FileHippo has nice clean downloads that do not try to add additional junk to your computer like many other software download sites try to do.

You will need 2 cats to haul that load, or one mono.......Weight is everything in a cat!!!!! Or maybe that's lack of weight?
