    NEWS ITEM: 
    A virus has been making its way around the Internet called Klez, which emails itself to any address it finds on your computer (from your address book, ICQ list, Internet cache, etc). The virus pretends to have been sent from a randomly chosen address it finds in your computer and sends itself out to other addresses it finds on your computer. You may not know you've gotten the virus because many email programs automatically preview email, and an infected email can contaminate your computer. This site gets several thousand email a week and our inbox is being bombarded with copies of the virus, which is time-consuming and makes it more difficult to get to the real emails. PLEASE get a virus checking program! They are inexpensive, easy to install and use, and once set up correctly can run in the background. We also urge you to make sure you keep your virus definitions up to date (a task which you may schedule the virus checker to do for you). We at the Pazsaz Entertainment Network use Norton AntiVirus, which checks our email for viruses before they can be downloaded onto our computers and keeps us protected, although there are many other virus checking products on the market. There is no good reason not to have a virus checker on your computer, as it saves everyone (including you) a lot of time and hassle!
