Holy infection

  1. So, I was recently reminded that there are malicious programs out there when I got a browser hijacker and had the annoying ad popups everytime I used my browser.
    I've gone through the 8 steps and here are the logs. There were a ton of infected files, so I hope that I did the steps right. I haven't seen any popup windows since I finished the scans.
    I kindof felt like Mr. Burns from the Simpsons, when the only reason he was living was because he had almost every known disease to man and they somehow balanced each other out. :D

    Thanks a bunch and Happy Thanksgiving.
