Okay, so I was recently infected with this virus/trojan....
I was stupid, k?
I downloaded an ActiveX control.
I was 10, for crying out loud!
Yes, I'm young.
But don't underestimate me, I own a website, and know a good bit... Maybe not as much as you peeps out there, but you get it. =)
Back to the point....
Okay, so I was just wondering what it is.
I don't want to get infected with it again.
It was totally DESTRUCTIVE.
I mean, it kept prompting me and prompting me and PROMPTING ME to install something. (forgot)
It was so annoying.
Then it changed my background, saying "WARNING: Your computer has been infected! Click here to install the latest virus protection!" Or something like that...
It was uber scary.
So, then I tried to use Internet Explorer.
CRASH BOOM BANG OUCH.
Yea, it didn't work.
So then, I scanned with Norton.
Gah, it froze up.
So I rebooted.
I mean, something, but it was WAY worse.
So, my mom told her computer tech guy person (xD) about it.
He looked at it.
Our entire hard drive was slowly being destroyed.
He said there was nothing he could do about it, except clearing the entire computer, and putting in all kinds of new thing. (You know, a new gfx adapter, chips, etc)
My site went on haitus.
BTW, the computer I am using right now is a Vista Pro Home. @ my dad's right now.
So, erm, can you tell me a lil' 'bout it?
*dies of laughter at the smiley*
