VIRUS ALERT!!!  NACHI WORM AND ADAWARE

I'm still getting word from NSSB that we have computers with viruses slowing down our network.  If your computer is not able to get Lotus Notes, Internet, or WinSchool, and/or it is performing very slow (more than usual if it's an older computer), you probably have a virus.  Also, if ad windows pop up without you being in Internet Explorer, this could be another virus.  Let me know as soon as any of these symptoms show up.   - D. Yamamoto
