TDSSosvd.dat TR/Agent.439 was found
I'm looking at a friend's fairly old Dell Dimension 4600c with XP Home. It runs as slow as molasses! Out of frustration, he just bought a new Gateway with Windows 7. (I guess he had been wanting a new PC lately, anyway.) He asked me to set it up and transfer his old files to it. I offered to take the PC hom... 11 Aug 2010 23:33

Receiving files from myself?
This morning when I first started Firefox, my proxy server told me I was receiving several files, including an html page and a few image files. I had just started Firefox, and had not entered any URL or clicked any bookmark or link. Firefox did not display the page or any images. The REALLY strange part - the proxy... 31 Jul 2010 23:46
