I Hate Hackersssssssssss!!!!!!!!!

I was minding my own business studying Chemistry, dipole-dipole attractions..and suddenly pop ups everywhere with Antivirus XP 2008...hmm I read it is a really dangerous virus...so dangerous my virus protector crashed and it put 53 viruses on my computer and it crashed. I am so pissed off at hackers. I didn't even install anything...or download anything. I hate PC's so much. Well that is my rant for the evening, time for bed. This is my first time using our new house computer...vista is strange...

I've been using McAfee and the standard Vista tools on this new laptop I got in February 08, and so far no problems. However, I don't open e-mails from anyone I don't recognise and never click on links in e-mails unless they are from friends colleagues.
Spammers really piss me off, I must get 50 a day. How do they get my e-mail address?

Best free virus destroyer out there. Haven't had a virus in years. Same for my parents and my sister and several of my schoolmates and lots of friends. You can set your preference how often to check for updates, but it can also do everything automatically. Very usefull anti-virus tool !!!

Yea, thats the same for me, I do not check emails that aren't from my family, friends, or professors. Whenever you sign up for anything, the company gives your email away to different companies that they are affiliated with...I think thats why I get like 50 messages a day too. That is why I don't use my yahoo account, I use my Detroit Mercy account.

I'm going to look into downloading that one when I get home from school, AVG just isn't cutting it anymore, this is the second time this has happened to me in a year with this retartedly expensive laptop...with the cost I paid you think it would be better...but no.
