First of all, i would like to thank you all for your film suggestions. It
looks as though I'll have some fun watching them to see what is useful for
Has anyone who has seen Babette's Feast also seen Chocolat? The trailers
seem to suggest some similarities.
Secondly, i must apologize to the list for inadvertently, and unknowlingly
sending an infected message. It seems that there is a virus which I got when
searching the internet for films. This virus sent a second message to every
message that I sent. The second message always had a blank subject line. My
Norton 2000 did not recognize it because it was very new. However, three
people sent me messages identifying it as W95.MTX.
Although i am not fully computer literate, I was able to locate it and
delete it as follows:
I searched my computer for files containing "MTX." I found one called Matrix
which was coded as MTX_.EXE
Deleting this file alone did not solve the problem. Since it had a creation
date, I did a further search for files created on that date. Once these were
deleted, the problem disappeared.
I guess this serves as an uncomfortable warning about the internet, but I
hope my solution proves useful to anyone else with similar problems now or
in the future.
My thanks to the folks who identified the problem and, once again, my
apologies to all.
