I am here as a result of having an attack of the "virtumonde" malware sent to me unknowingly by a friend via email containing a cartoon. It was not an attachment either, I don't open any of his email with attachments. It must have been embedded in the email within the cartoon. It took the better part of 8 hours to find it and get rid of it, finally using a fix found on this site.

Many people avoid problems such as this by reading all E-mails in plain text. Welcome to BC!
