WARNING!! Windows Users

Not firearms related, but significant enough to post. Don't panic or avoid this forum, but be aware and watch for developments.

Thanks for the warning, CaptCharlie.

This is definitely one of the few things that should still be posted, even though it's non gun-related.

virus

Fsecure had that virus pegged before word got out. I have tried all the antivirus. I thought Panda was the best. Fsecure Security Suite lets NOTHING through if it even appears suspicious. If you get a nasty in your pc that nothing will remove, I think you can get a free trial. I'm not trying to sell anything. I've done a lot of web security, and I just want any fellow gunners having to format. (Fsecure writes adaware spyware remover, it's free. a must if you surf forums)

Thanks Charlie. I've been trying to get the straight scoop on this one myself.

I believe Peter Watts' book Maelstrom was the first to predict the abundance of virii through pictures. Interesting that it happened this soon, though.
