Dear Rute,

3 years ago, I was 16 hours a day involved in my M.Sc. thesis, using 4
computers at a time,
for running millions of silly Monte Carlo photons scattering simulation
cases and did not have time to give attention
for the really silly stuff that came to me via net ( just the important ones).
But now I could remember, from the deep of my memory archives, some comments
about a fact like this ( false virus alarms...)
Sorry for boring you :-|D
