McAfee Anti-Virus Users Beware of Serious Glitch

A new update released by McAfee for their anti-virus software contains a false positive that can potentially cause Windows XP with Service Pack 3 computers to not be able to boot up again.  This problem is caused by a false positive for the w32/wecorl.a worm in their 5958 DAT update, which would cause the C:\Windows\System32\svchost.exe file to be mistakenly deleted.  This file is an Windows system file required to start many critical services.  Therefore, once this file is deleted, Windows will no longer be able to start.

Priorities for Cudahy Mayor Tony Day

Cudahy, Development, Mayor, Tony Day, Packard Plaza

I know Mayor Day already knows that “Development” in Cudahy is the key issue.  And it is sad that Cudahy has an Economic development team with a full time Director of Economic Development that was misused and misguided.  As I keep getting asked, how and why was precious time and resources taken away from this team for School and Mayoral “PR” stories and why was the valuable Director of Economic Development asked to take time away from her job to help work on an Employee Manual when one of the Alderpersons full time job is HR?  The only answers I have received have been, you do what the Mayor asks and if you aren’t in the clique or on good graces with the Mayor polices and wants, not much will be asked of you.
