barakltd. Sorry but I have had to remove your post. The link you gave seems to be the one you yourself received in a phishing scam email. Already someone else has tried the link on your behalf, but fortunately their McAfee site adviser warned them against proceeding further.
To avoid others being caught out the way you were I am re-posting without the link.
One other thing. You have posted this in the Community Newsletter forum. You may not get many other replies here as this is for comments on CNET's Community Newsletters. You may do better posting elsewhere, say in the Spyware, viruses and security forum here; http://forums.cnet.com/5204-6132_102-0.html?forumID=32&tag=dir.forum
If you do, please do not post that dangerous link.
