    Why would you allow the FBI to scan your computer? :confused:

    I don't have anything illegal on there but still, f*ck em. If they wanna' look at my computer they can get a warrant.

    I would't because I never believed this latest hysteria to begin with. If it's not mysterious computer viruses, it's bird flu viruses, it's alar, its global warming/cooling/change, Y2K. Have you noticed that there is a new hysteria almost every day with the same solution. The government will take care of it for you.

    Yeah, but then they'll be able to access all my violent video games and conclude that I'm some wacko. I think this virus was created by the FBI.:eek:

    This is a serious issue. If that were to be true, and if it's a given that a lot of users are already infected, then the security of the net is questionable. More research and data required regarding this issue.

    Encountered some curious malware downloading user-created 'maps' for a fairly old obscure rpg. Thing powered-off my system and made it unable to power back on. And when it did it would randomly shut itself off again.

    Deleted the game directory and that fixed things. But to make sure this was the source reinstalled it, reinstalled the same maps and sure enough the problem re-emerged. Deleted again and that fixed it.

    Because of how many maps I had, I'm not sure which one was ultimately responsible.

    Ya right. Something just one company on earth can determine and help you fix is totally legit.
