As some may have noticed, I've been away for a while.

I got infected.


I picked up the Antivirus 2009 Trojan. The latest version of the tried-and-true "Fake Antivirus that finds fake viruses to sell you a fake update to a fake program to give money to a fake company owned by a real person." Of course, I'm not THAT dumb, but this particular virus strain proved to be highly resilient to my removal attempts.

AVG couldn't find it.

AdAware could remove it, but not REMOVE it.

Norton, McAffe and other popular programs have proved equally useless, according to my research.

So, HUGE props to Bleeping Computer and MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware for setting me straight.

I'm finally 100% again and will start posting again this weekend.
