Message-ID: <21************ ***********@pos ting.google.com >
Hi,

In these 2 days I received many e-mail requesting me for doing upgrade
with various microsoft components (examples below). But from what I
know microsoft will generally not asking normal users (my e-mail
account is just a free one among the millions others) to do this. Will
those e-mail contain trojan horse programs or virus ? Where can I
report the case (I need one concrete e-mail address) to if so ?

Thanks!
