They are saddos Ben. Just keep computing with all the guards up and you'll be OK. Or come here if you have a problem.

No doubt Santa has something interesting for you tomorrow so make sure you go to sleep. My method for doing this is start with a few G&Ts ... maybe not appropriate in your case!

My wife makes sure I have some G&Ts so I will fall asleep and not stay up to try and catch Rudolph eating his carrot.
All the Best

might ask then, what sites are you visiting that get all this crap on your machine;
and what basic protection,both literal and metaphorical ; there are a lot of crazy, irrational, selfish folk out there , who will do anything to put a spanner in the works.and they do not care whose " works " it is, and their ethical standards are...well, not ethical:)

Very sad, pathetic people but they seem to have good programming skills. So why don't they use these skills to write better programmes than MS?
