The old Adobe Scam is being used again, if you receive an E-Mail that looks like the one below do not not click the link.
delete the E-Mail

This is a bogus email and you should not download any software from the sites linked within the email. Adobe the makers of Adobe Reader and other software will notify you of an update when you use their software and not send out an email telling you about updates.

Text is from here: Adobe E-Mail Hoax...

No, I use various progs for malaware and I use Yahoo email so apart from the connection to Yahoo, so long as I steer clear of opening a file then I have a chance, but then as an exercise every other month I usually format the drive and reinstall everything I need.
