Hi Alex,

It was indeed a virus, but a windows virus only (I'm _not_ on windows)

I got rid of it of it though so can't sent it to you - However, I would 
appreciate a link or two on the "feature" if you have some available (my dad 
always says "go to bed smarter than when you woke up"

Best regards,
