    i noticed all of my saved passwords weren't saved anymore today and when opened outlook express had to enter passwords for first time since initial setup. Think the worm paid me a visit? I heard otherwise non-invasive, but gets passwords, etc. Any implications is hit?

    I must admit it makes me nervous to scan online. Don't like to send info to websites... It's safe and secure and what will they capture? Thanks!!

    You don't even have to give them an e-mail address.... only for statistics will they ask you what country you're in.
