Crash and Burn

So im minding my own buisness looking up information on the internets (Mistake 1) when all of the sudden my browser, firefox, freezes and then I get a wonderful message from windows that my firewall is down. Well shit I say and try and put it back up when I get another wonderful message. My anti-virus has been deactivated. Then i start getting spammed about all the shit that is flying apart in my machine. I diconnected the internets manually and try to open and run anything that is anti virus related... nothing.

Well its time for me to take it out to get fixed. Hope I didn't lose all of my shit on that system. I think its time to invest in a real anti-virus instead of one I got for free on the internets. I have been hearing a lot of people have been getting attacked recently by something that does a similar job. here is to hoping that its not a pattern. Well back to changing all the passwords I can.

Also, my mothers computer is FUCKING SLOW!

nothing wrong with the freeware. i've never been a fan of norton or mcaffe for the home systems personally. i run avast for antivirus and AVG for antispyware

Yah, have both of those and this thing ate them in a few seconds.

funny enough it was not on a phisher sight. I was doing some research on guns and on one of the pages was the virus.

??? sarcasm?

Truth. I recommend Microsoft Security Essentials. Works just fine with me. I also use Maleware Bytes which is great for spyware.
