I booted in Safe mode (F8). Cannot run Windows Update in Safe Mode, cannot run Microsoft Security Essentials in Safe Mode. In ordinary boot mode, cannot run Microsoft Security Essentials at all, Microsoft Update gives very strange error messages, the "Windows Firewall" control panel has been COMPLETELY TAKEN OVER by the virus, and the relentless fcckkrr keep sending out popups -- that look SO CONVINCING!! It is scaring the shit out of my grandma, and also angering me. Are those people being prosecuted, they should end up in prison!! So, it's reinstall-operating-system time? snark BUY A MAC snark BUY WINDOWS 7 --- ---- --- --- so, does XP Security 2011 officially pwn Windows XP completely?
