Let's hope this campaign gets the help and success that it needs. Nellie2 and her colleagues deserve further praise for their achievements so far. Its going to be an uphill struggle, but with the support of many, the task of overcoming this nuisance can be a great success.

Oh gee thanks... believe me, no one was more surprised than me when the BBC said they wanted to do that article.

So now you all know the real me!!! Shock horror!

Please don't forget that the whole aim of the campaign is to get people who have been affected by this sort of rogue application to complain to me either on my blog or at malware removal or you can even fill in the online form that is in the BBC article. (They did promise to forward comments on to me)

See my original post click here for further details.

well done,I like the comment in the write up about what you do in the real world. I would think anyone getting a trojan or worse thinks this is the real world.
