Google UK Maps
TomTom Navigator users will be at home with these maps but try getting directions from Loxwood to Ifold, locals will notice this is not the best route!

Hi Fred: Can you point to any articles you've done on "rootkits" and their removal? See: http://tinyurl.com/3uc8a Thanks, Michael H. Bell
A timely question, Michael--- there's growing activity in this area. A "rootkit" is a kind of software that activates each time the system boots. Malware installed as a rootkit is hard to find and very difficult to control because it's up and running before most of the rest of the OS is ready; and certainly before the user interface is up. Rootkits can be a problem for 2K/XP and Unix-like OSes (including Linux, Mac OSX, etc.).
End-user tools are only just now becoming available for this class of malware; most presume a fair degree of knowledge on the part of the user. Examples:

Reader Richard Schimpff also contacted me about rootkits and provided some links, including this: http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1759,1785621,00.asp (Thanks, Richard!)
There's sure to be more activity in this area in the future: Stay tuned!
