    That day my mom was working at her office and she was browsing the internet for some information. At the same time she was working in MS-WORDS(97). Suddenly a message popped up in her Words document, it said "You are ****". Mom was surprised.
    Her computer is on a LAN and she is guessing that someone send it to her from the office only. Is it possible ?
    Please help

    There are several way that a message can be sent to popup like that. The computer should be scanned for any virus infections just to be sure, but it may be some looser in the company making an a** of themselves.
