I'm a newbie -- usually only lurk on forums instead of posting but decided to register and post after being bothered for days by a cheeky and shameless bit of malware. I stupidly clicked for a "Free" scan and ended up with an irritating little bugger called Antivirus 2009. Kinda like cockroaches: you think you've killed them all and one appears on the breakfast counter waving his freaking antennae at you.
