Sleepwalking my way through life: According to the demographic…



According to the demographic…

Current score:

Spyware, Malware and other affiliates – Several billion

Me – One

Yes, unfortunately due to lack of paying attention to what I was stealing downloading, I acquired a virus. Within seconds of my download being completed I received numerous pop-ups, emails and flashing warnings that basically stated “Omg! Trojan totally 0wns j00!”

So started four hours of blind panic where I ran three security checks before reinstalling Norton and running another scan. After doing everything short of performing an exorcism on my Lapdancer I clicked the system restore button, waving goodbye to my free hours as I spent them installing key programs once again, but I literally jumped for joy as I realised that my computer could be restored to last week.

So I sit with my Lapdancer, once again clean viruses. I feel as if I should raise my arms and proclaim “I am invincible!”, but I am worried that I would die in the following three seconds.

I think I’ll just whisper it quietly then…

Little tip: that restore does absolutely nothing, believe me, I've tried. It mostly restores history and settings to before, I don't believe it will really delete anything. And ditch Norton, the bloated piece of crap. AVG is all I need.

Ah, but it was a whole system restore, meaning that everyhting that I downloaded, wrote and installed within the last week was erased and my all my settings went back too.

And you're right about Norton, but it's still registered for October, and it's half decent at stop viruses from getting into your pc (Though utter crap getting them out).

Thanks for the tip though.

People say bad things about Norton all the time but for me it hasn't done bad at all. I have never had a virus or spyware on my computer HOWEVER my laptop doesn't even have any protection and it is fine.

In my opinion the only thing that beats Norton for what I use the computer for is the newer versions of Sophos, which absolutley kick ass.

Haha. Drugs are awful. The only I've done is pot. And, it's just me writing, I'm basically never half serious anyways. But, thanks for the comment :)
