    Not surprising at all. Not the first time we're seeing a system being compromised in just a short matter of time.

    And in such dangerous situation, we have to activate WinXPpro after installation. That's Microsoft's security policy. Pffft :rolleyes:

    That's why I use a rollback and prevention system on my computer. There is no other way, if you want a simple, fast and complete removal of malwares. Scanners don't have a future, they are out-of-date.
    I'm telling this, since I'm a member at Wilders, but almost nobody believes me and I always cried quietly about that. :D :D :D
