    Not necessarily saying it would happen here - but thought I would throw this out as a general thing. Likely everyone knows, but be very careful with PDF files. I caught a very nasty computer ransomware bug (google cryptowall if interested) a week and a half ago that I was very lucky in suffering minimal damage from. I just happened to start a scan about an hour after it started doing its thing. I still haven't figured out where it came from, but online info points to coming in from a file zipped with a PDF, or something like that. I can't remember even downloading a zipped PDF file. So it's a mind boggler to me. My computer is still sluggish at times, mostly on startup, and I lost a few files. But I had most backed up from a couple weeks before that.

    After that I ponied up for the paid Malwarebytes, updated my AVG to 2014, and also installed Avira. They all do their scheduled things at different times.

    It was pretty darned shaky here for a couple days...

    You're limited to a certain file size here also - maybe something like 2.5 MB.

    Really big ones are better sent by email or linked to.....if they are relevant, we can also put them in the wiki (if you send by email)
