That was an advertisement. You didn't click on it did you? Go to http://www.lavasoft.de and download AdAware Personal Edition then run it.

They're not viruses, they're spyware. They basically just slow your computer down alot, and don't cause much, if any real damage.

This is exactly what has been going on through the entire thread, and it's not the first time either.
You come to us for advice..you just spell out what you want to get, and then ask us if it is okay, and we have to explain why it isn't. That's the world upside down.. If you would just say 'hey guys, I have an X amount of money, what should I buy?' Then this would be over in 2-3 posts, not 2-3 pages.

Every time someone goes against Weiman's sig I feel like they should be bludgeoned for a few minutes in the head to feel the headache I feel when I realize someone really IS that dense.
