The ILOVEYOU virus comes in an e-mail note with “I LOVE YOU” in the subject line and contains an attachment that, when opened, results in the message being re-sent to everyone in the recipient’s Microsoft Outlook address book and, perhaps more seriously, the loss of every JPEG, MP3, and certain other files on the recipient’s hard disk. Because Microsoft Outlook is widely installed as the e-mail handler in corporate networks, the ILOVEYOU virus can spread rapidly from user to user within a corporation. On May 4, 2000, the virus spread so quickly that e-mail had to be shut down in a number of major enterprises such as the Ford Motor Company. The virus reached an estimated 45 million users in a single day.The attachment in the ILOVEYOU virus is a VBScript program that, when opened (for example, by double-clicking on it with your mouse), finds the recipient’s Outlook address book and re-sends the note to everyone in it. It then overwrites (and thus destroys) all files of the following file types: JPEG, MP3, VPOS, JS, JSE, CSS, WSH, SCT and HTA. Users who don’t have a backup copy will have lost these files. (In March 1999, a virus named Melissa virus ?also replicated itself by using Outlook address books, but was less harmful in destroying user files.) The ILOVEYOU virus also resets the recipient’s Internet Explorer start page in a way that may cause further trouble, resets certain Windows registry settings, and also acts to spread itself through Internet Relay Chat (Internet Relay Chat).

Recently, I’ve been investing in stocks thru UITFs. I already invested 8 times and pulled out 4 of my investments, At first, I was a bit hesitant and invested a huge amount in a very conservative bond fund with just a return of 4% in 3 months. Second investment was a small amount but I tried investing in a riskier balanced fund. That time, stocks were starting to perform well so in just 4 months, I gained around 15%. That amount was so small though since I only invested a minimal amount. So what did I have? Definitely small return. My 3rd and 4th investments were quite huge already which were still invested in Balanced Funds. After around 5 months, I gained around 16%. My 5th to 6th investments were back in small amounts but this time I invested in the riskiest of all which was Equity Fund since prospects in the performance of the stock market was very much enticing with reports from some articles that it might reach a peak of 4,400 by July of next year given strong corporate earnings, less inflation rate, strong peso, and strong fiscal performance of the government.

Right now, I’m spotting market corrections for possible additional investments. I’m still a conservative person. I should have invested a huge amount if I want a huge return.

For readers, just remember the rule – BUY LOW, SELL HIGH. And by the way, don’t forget to read some news about our economy and how well does it perform. You will base your decisions to invest based on those news.

Happy Investing Fellow Investors!
