    Don't mention it. It says it start at some myspace deal and then says you need this virus projection software to clean it out. So there you go.

    When did it start? I was logged into there yesterday afternoon. Still, none of my warnings went off at the time and yesterdays scans after I went offline came up clean so hopefully I'm safe.

    Bloody viruses.

    I don't even look at peoples images when they send or post a photobucket link. I host my own images. That place blows.

    I'm doing some virus scans as I was on PB uploading a few images when I found out about this.
