1st, i'd like to propose renaming this site to smurfingcomputer.com. i just think it sounds funny. "smurf" is a great exclamation, covering pretty much all the bases, just like "bleep."
example: "Aww, smurf!! I smurfin' smurfed it!!!"
anyway, i ended up via google search. "XP Police Antivirus" got installed on my machine by me inadvertently (all i did was click on my desktop, but the spyware site my browser had been redirected to hijacked my entire screen just before i clicked; i never saw it coming). now that i'm here, i hope to learn about malware and how to effectively deal with it so i will have some idea of where to begin next time it happens to me or a friend.
