Exactly what my Provider let through their Mail Severs and my AV caught it and it was from a friend on the otherside of the world who I thought was doing her best to keep her computer upto date, well I found out a few more new developments that should have been tweaked. ūüė¶ OH well guess it is for the better ūüôā
