Well, Conficker got me...
I was working away on my computer at school yesterday when a dialog box popped up and informed me that conficker had been detected on my machine and my computer was going to be remotely shut down in 20, 19, 18, 17.... seconds.
It was down all afternoon and a computer tech got it going again this morning. A thumb drive was infected with two viruses but neither was conficker.
It seems there are conficker A, B, C, D versions or something like that. So if I start posting nonsensical posts, well, more nonsensical than normal, somebody may be posting for me - .

How do we know that you are you right now and that by clicking on your thread you didn't just give it to us.
We need to give you a test.

Answer correctly or you are getting banned.

This may or may not be of some help. That bugger is tough to find let alone get rid of...

Ditch Micro$oft Windoze and run under Linux where almost everything is "open source" (free). Very few, if any, bad virus in Linux.
I am running the Ubuntu flavor of Linux for 2 years. No more crashes, blue screen of death, memory leaks (in the computer that is, in my head not really true).

I double that. I am usually running Slackware linux. Ubuntu is a lot more "coming from windows" friendly.
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
