Just to let everyone know, I have been using the latest version of Norton AntiVirus on my computer and I update it monthly. It automatically deletes e-mails that contain a virus and informs me of the capture. There are no executable programs on The CJ2A Page, so there is no danger from visiting. The only way to catch a virus is to save an infected file onto your computer and run the program that contains the virus.
I would encourage everyone to make sure their virus protection programs are up to date. When you get an e-mail, make sure you don't open any attachments unless you are sure of the source. Even then, a friend may unwittingly send you a virus in a forwarded e-mail. Many viruses spread by sending themselves out to everyone or random addresses in a person's address book, so even if you receive an attachment from a friend you may want to be careful about opining it.
The way to prevent the spread of viruses is to remain always vigilant.
I'm attaching a link to the McAfee antivrus page.
