Update Windows Lately?

If you haven't, update now. A new worm is on the loose, and you don't even need to open an email to be infected. If you are running Windows NT, 2000 or XP you are most likely vulnerable to it's attack. I found that out yesterday first hand when my brother in law Bobby's computer was acting funny. If infected it will slow your computer down, not let you run Windows update, and will run a maliscious script on the 16th (supposedly) that may crash your computer completely. The following link will provide you with more symptoms, and what you can do if you find you are infected. Please read. Symantec Security Response - W32.Blaster.Worm
