Given that Flash & Shockwave have about as much access to the controlling of your machine as you do at the keyboard....

I NEVER update any **Player** from anywhere but the originators home site, thru my own existing bookmarks/favorites, since you can't be sure the cursor over is true addie you reach & infected versions abound.

Any time I download ANY of those kind of formats (Audio/Video/Wmv/Mp3
etc.etc., I save them to 1 folder for the purpose, then right click scan them with everything I've got before opening. Still not 100% fool proof but as good as I can do. Wink
