I have got a serious malware problem that I have had for approximately one month. One of the reasons it took me so long to sign up is, I think, is that I am feeling some shame at how I probably acquired what I think is a trojan of the rootkit variety. I have always been meticulously careful (and ethical) about which sites I visit and download from; but I fell off the wagon after getting an ebook reader for my birthday and I went on a rampage looking for free ebooks. Plenty of great classics out there, that have no copyright restrictions -- but I got hungry/greedy for some other titles -- and boy did I learn my lesson. (I had accessed a number of links at one site, without a problem, over the course of a few days -- but one link was evidently dangerous when a porno site popped up -- shocked me badly -- closed the window immediately -- shocked me so badly I couldn't remember what book title I had clicked on, so I couldn't even report it.)
Funny/sad thing is, I already had plenty of great books on my ereader to last a lifetime. Anyway, thanks for hearing my confession, y'all. Happy, happy to be here (despite being overwhelmed by the wealth of info), and as soon as I finish prepping I will post in the malware forum. Actually, I already downloaded the DDS program but it keeps disappearing seconds after running it, and no reports seem to be manifesting. But I will do a search before officially declaring this a problem.
