Hi Gary,

Yes. It is bad, but not sure it quite rises to this level? I'd rather settle for a dead computer any day! Who ultimately cares about the stupid computer?

Well folks, this thing is so terrible, it's like someone pointing a gun to the head of a friend of yours, and as much as telling us that he or she is going to pull the trigger, and shoot him or her. This is very critical, and I believe it's making everyone in the blind community very angry! I hope that everyone who lost files because of this bastard will be able to have things corrected, and that they will be back on line soon!

Well for a little while now, Microsoft has a "malicious software" tool
that is updated regularly with windows update.  I would think trojan
horse programs should be considered malicious in my book and at this
Microsoft tool ot to be able to faret it out.  After all, it attacks
Windows components, right?
