Whew. I seem to have cleaned up a viral infection today - in a pc at one of the places I work.

It was a clever beastie. It kept you from downloading new antivirus software. It kept you from running some antivirus software.

But the internet - searched from a different pc - held solutions.

One thing I've found is that a lot of these malwares display a message at some point. Write that message down and look it up, because that is the most specific clue you've got. And someone else has probably already solved your problem.

The creators of the virus
hope that they can tire us
with variations galore.

But this is bleeping war
and I never stop until
their code is killed.
