My home computer has been infiltrated by a very nasty virus, ostensibly AND ironically promoting itself to be AntiSpyware software. I don't know how I came to download it, because as soon as it popped up, I knew it to be bogus and tried to get far, far away from the darn thing. Alas, the damage was already done.
