Despite being overly cautious (obviously not cautious enough) I seem to have fallen prey to that heinous Conficker scam. This iteration of the detestable worm is called AV Live. I'm currently working from another computer, but it drives me insane nonetheless, since the virus could well have my passwords. Guess I'll have to change them again.
I wish Gypsy curses operated over the internet, because I would definitely curse the dastards who created this monstrous thing.
