    See my post under 'new special game' thread for history, but the quick version is:
    1) I received and inadvertantly opened a classic klez email
    2) 2 machines on my lan (file shared) are now showing same symptons of 'printer not ready' and one periodically loses it's lan connection and IP address, both are using USB connections for printer and lan
    3) Symantec, Mcafee and Fsecure klez specific tools are not detecting and infected files.
    Clues ?
    Thanks,
    peter

    Update
    The only damage seems to be some corruption of the file and print routines, that I was able to suspend from loading, then restore from master CD. Both machines seem stable right now and have been for 24 hours.

    I can't tell if this was klez damage or not, but the email message that started all this was definately klez.
