I am the culprit who recently inquired about a virus (Word macro, as it
turned out) which was affecting files I was producing and receiving from
clients for whom I'm doing tech writing.

Given other people's requests for help with client/employer problems, I
assumed this was ok. Sorry if it wasn't proper--though I'd hope that such
inquiries would be ok as requests for mutual aid in our work.

And again, thanks to all those who sent advice.
