Default WMA and/or WMV files

Dear All

My very first lesson about WMV and WMA files happened while using LW, I learned that you should always run your anti-virus and anti-spyware software over them before launching and never, ever, play them while connected to the internet. Remember, these files cannot download anything or bombard you with pop-ups unless they have an internet connection.

Two more things, if while trying to launch a WMV or WMA file it insists on an internet connection then delete it; the connection it is trying to make is not designed to help you. And finally, after playing one of these files successfully, run your anti-spyware software again, just as an added precaution.
