Exclamation ALERT ALERT READ ME! - March 7th 2010, 07:15 PM

So yesterday I got on my computer and out of nowhere this thing popped up and my computer was attacked, it was hijacked, hacked and attacked by trojans, viruses, malware, spyware. It took my dad over 4 hours to fix it, he downloaded a special program that everyone else who have had their computers attacked by the same thing mine was used the same program and it saved my computer. Everyone needs to keep their eyes peeled, there is a very bad virus infested/malware/spyware/trojan sort of thing going around, BE ON THE LOOKOUT!!!!! This thing can be attached to A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G! that means picures,emails,documents,myspace,facebook,twitter, tumblr,formspring, unprotected websites it can even be attached to ANY protected website MAKE SURE your computer has anti virus make sure your firewall is on, most of all be EXTREMLY careful. I donít want anyone to have to go through what I went through. Be safe okay?

I also have hip dysplasia and scoliosis.

Nothing new, things like this have been happening for years and years and years you know right?
But yah, getting a good spyware and antivirus program will do you a ton of good.
Not going to sites that frequently have these problems is a good idea too. So, you know, all those popular social websites that I have nothing to do with.
Don't download anything if you're not positive what it is and don't trust where it's coming from. Always check your address bar before accepting anything your computer asks you (this is good for avoiding losing your personal information too).

I'm going to go ahead and close this. Viruses like this are always around but a reminder is always nice.
