    Blasted Trojans!!!

    Anyone know how to rid a computer of Trojan horse Downloader.generic.GUK?

    I got this off of AIM.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    I thought this was going to be a rant about USC for a minute.

    I have a Mac. Funny how I've never had to worry as much about those things.

    Thanks! I have virus protection, but somehow this managed to squeak through unnoticed until it was too late.

    Those things are sneaky. At a previous job I had a while back (last time I had to use Windows) we used to get them quite a bit and we had all sorts of protection on the servers and on each machine.

    No one wastes their time trying to bring down 6% of the market.

    And that's fine with me. I have Virtual PC, so I can run any Windows program I would ever want to (very rare occasion) and I don't have to worry about all the other issues.

    True, you know it's the idea that your machine can be open to a network that is the deathknell to folks.

    Your box is like your home, you wouldn't leave the windows and front door open al the time would you?

    That's what AIM and all that stuff is, an open window with a tattered screen.

    And I thought... sava's lady-friend had an EPT that did not turn the "right" color and it had to do with a faulty product that was used "that night".

    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    I know you broke your arm and all - and please realize that this isn't a personal insult - but this is funny...

    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
