A common prob. with new Macs and the "server cannot be found" error are the DNS server numbers.

You need to get them from your modem or router and put them in your computer.

I have found that it is urgent to put in the DNS server #s manually. If you don't you will be plagued with errors in MOST cases.

1. get your numbers from modem or router
2. system prefs>network>configure

why even use virex?
To avoid unintentionally spreading viruses among Windows users, I guess. (though all of those ought to have virus programs of their own- still, even if it's picked up it won't make the Mac look good)

unless you pass on loads of attachments there is no point, the likelihood of a word document having a macro virus is miniscule if it comes from someone you know, you cant spread a virus on a mac unless you receive and send the thing yourself
