People Suck

I hate stupid trojans that pretend to be antivirus programs and shut down my computer.

As if I won’t notice that I never installed this program.

As if I will just hand over my credit card info for this strange program to “fix” viruses that do not exist.

As if I will not notice that the program has shut down all other functionality on my computer.

I am not an idiot, thank you. I am, however, spending several hours trying to remove it. If that fails, there will be reformatting. And then reloading.

I had this exact thing happen just four months ago. And it looks like this one snuck in through my Java plug-in. The one that runs half the websites I use. I don’t know what the hell I’m supposed to do about that.

This is not what I wanted to be doing with my day.
