Dear Mark,

I connected to the modem of my dsl connection.  I have been using the Internet 
to communicate, as I am now, on my laptop.  I have to use the direct line, 
because the router seems to be not working right now.

Have you heard of a virus that can not only redirect your emails, change 
communication with your ISP, and also screw up the Internet connection?

Any idea what to do when I can't download Klamav?  Thanks!
