Has anyone ever been cursed with that parasite virus Internet Security 2010? This is the worse one i have ever had on a computer. It even ask for a credit card number to download the program to fix it.. If you ever see the words Internet Security 2010, run...  Im very thankful it wasnt my main computer..  Guess i need a new trotline weight anway...

Thanks for the tip.  I'm always wary of these online "security" patches.

Thanks for the heads up.  When it a comes to viruses "an ounce of prevention" as they say.  Hope you get your computer healthy again.

Tim, what kind of protection do you have against things like this? I need a good program or software, it's happened to me twice.
