     5. [Perh. corrupt. fr. OE. mesh for mash: cf. muss.] A
        disagreeable mixture or confusion of things; hence, a
        situation resulting from blundering or from
        misunderstanding; as, he made a mess of it. [Colloq.]
        [1913 Webster]

Also a modern colloquial usage of it means to do something unauthorised, an 
adult might say to a child "don't mess with my car".

I do not get viruses because I do not use MS software.
If you use Outlook then please do not put my email address in your
address-book so that WHEN you get a virus it won't use my address in the
