I just had a thought.....remember you were one of the few who dowloaded
Version 7 of AVG and had no problems...they all started AFTER the huge
download...right? Did you try resetting your computer to the day
BEFORE you had the huge download ? You may not if you were going to
lose a lot of information.

Elaine I can understand why you have had to resort to using Avast, I
merely wondered if you had tried this option.

Kind Regards

Yes, that is precisely what I have been receiving Annette. I don't want
to deal with it and I don't have to when I am not using AVG.

Recipients involved AOL, Wmconnect (an AOL clone), Comcast Cable, and
this and another Rootsweb mailing list. I can't remember what other
addresses were returned. Redirecting and forwarding in efforts to reach
the addressees did not work, they were again rejected and returned to
me. Finally I had to go out to my GMail account and use the internet to
send the rejected mail. I have written to PeoplePC but don't plan to
agitate. I have taken the easier road and left AVG again for AVAST. I
will think about whether I want to continue with PeoplePC. Computers
are meant to be enjoyable. When things don't work right, I move on. I
am not a masochist <smile>.
