Open a Finder Window with the App Switcher

If you don't have any Finder windows open and want to switch to the Finder and open a window in one fell swoop, bring up the app switcher with Command-Tab and tab over to the Finder icon. While still holding down Command, press the Option key, and then release the Command key. You're switched to the Finder, with a new default window open for you.

Virex Corrected

Send Article to a Friend

Jeffrey L. Needleman passes along this note from Microcom.

The following is a revised version of the UDV (user defined virus) code necessary to update Virex 3.x to detect the recently discovered CODE 252 virus.

The original UDV falsely identified the virus in a number of files under specific conditions. We recommend that you delete the original CODE 252 definitions and enter this revised version.

We apologize for any inconvenience!

     Name: CODE 252
     Guide Number: 6332704
     1: 0203 3001 7778 2A00 / 79
     2: 0C50 4EFA 0003 A9AB / C4
