If you get an email from support@microsoft.com with a link to Internet Explorer 7 Release Candidate 1, don't go there: A trojan downloader will get installed and set up a backdoor into your computer. The spoofed message's link takes you to a site that looks convincingly similar to a Microsoft page...

Hi, quietman7, I actually received that e-mail! But no worry, I haven't used ie since Opera came out. If I need to go to a site that blocks Opera,(like Yahoo's LaunchCast), I just use an ie shell, Avant browser.
