just found out that a relative (i swear im going to disown him now!:grrr:) was using my moms computer searching for websites that sell Vicodin & Diet Pills. :grrr: im sooooo mad!

one of the volunteers here has said that she is infected with malware & a password stealing backdoor trojan which can lead to identity theft! could searching for these things be the reason for the malware & trojans???

let me know before i completely go off on him! :evilgrin:
