No attachment, and I doubt the viruses are coming from my machine.

I run three anti-virus and spybot detection programs almost everyday and am 
behind two firewalls with outbound protection as well.

I also have a fixed IP so if you send me a copy of one of the posts 
(without the virus, please) I'll be happy to do what I can to trace down 
the actual source.

Who says bad manuals aren't a risk to your life?  Just ask the passengers 
of the jet where the engine caught fire because the company's maintenance 
manual was wrong about how to install one key bolt.  (NTSB Report on GE CF6 
engine fire, American Airlines flight 574, July 9, 1998.
