    Just hope no one here clicks on the "here" link! Might be better to delete or disable it. :)

    my antivirus kicked it out as 'uncommon download, may be dangerous'
    so i agree with DBK.......corrupt or delete the link Peter.

    Uncommon Download WarningYou attempted to download something from an unfamiliar and potentially dangerous website. You should only download programs from sites you trust.

    Well I clicked it but nothing there, the site was the wild ripple but the archive not available.

    I would not recommend clicking it but as I have an I-pad I felt confident enough to have a look to save anybody else looking, see what I do for you guys.

    E-Z Pass is genuine enough. It is the electronic pass you can use on toll highways in large parts of North East USA. Many residents, including my daughter has one, and most hire cars are equipped with them. Whether the email and link is genuine is another matter though
