I have often read advice given to people that if you are on BB you should not leave your dial-up connection plugged in to the bt socket. Can nasties /viruses get into a pc via the broadband connection if left plugged in when pc not in use? Meshuga. OS XPhome.

If you're on BB just unplug your phone line from the computer.

'Nasties' can't get in via BB if your computer is off.
