Rogue Software, grmph!!!!

I caught a rogue software called "Antivirus XP 2008", a shitty stuff trying to sell me an antivirus, the whole mess with BSOD and continuous popups. With such unpleasant manners, I don't think they sell a lot of their stuff!
It took me exactly 7 hours (seven hours!!!) to get rid of it! I wouldn't post here if I wasn't clear by now, believe me. No software could help deleting it, I had to clean everything with my little fingers, till correcting the register where some lines had suppressed the Desktop and Screensaver tabs in the Display box. I fucking hate those morons!

It came through an e-mail, telling of a greeting card. Usually I nevernevernever open this kind of thing w/o a very good reason, but with my bd coming close, I thought that... Well, I'll be even more careful now.

I am having trouble with something similar, it keeps trying to download an antivirus on my computer, but in actual fact, it is spyware. Sorry to hear that this happened to you.

Ow. I'm sorry you had to go through that, but I'm glad you got it cleared up. Those antivirus things are worse than most spyware!
