Even though I have some very good anti-virus programs, I have contracted a particularly mean, nasty, pervasive virus or malware or something that has virtually destroyed my computer.
NO, YOUR COMPUTER WILL NOT BE INFECTED IF YOU READ THIS MESSAGE. I am presently using a friend's computer.
This monster took over my entire system, including my email program. It changed entries in my registry and caused complete havoc including changing its name each time I booted. It comandeered the Windows Media Player to play audio spam messages! It caused itself to be memory-resident which resulted in extreme difficulties. It made my CPU run at one-hundred percent at all times which resulted in very high operating temperatures.
At this time, I have a computer virus expert working on it. I suggest the death penalty for people who write these types of destructive things.
I hope to be back to the forum soon with my own computer.
My best to everyone.
