Blimey! 23 infected items so far! I hope to god the scan is over soon because I want to get this bloody computer sorted out and then get some sleep.

Funny, isn't it, how I happen to discover all this malware late at night? When dealing with viruses, I follow the 'kill it before it kills you" school of thought... so I must stay up attacking it until it's gone.

Bloody inconvenient timing, if you ask me. Why couldn't I find a malware program in the morning? What a buggerance!

Methinks this needs to be vented in a novel of some sort. *starts getting ideas, all of which are lovely and bizarre*

*ZOOOOOOM* [cue battle music]

These malware infections are like the random battles on Final Fantasy 7. Only not as frequent and ten times more annoying.

Yes, I will probably shut up about that game eventually. Some time soon? Probably not.

By the way...

I was almost - almost - expecting this stupid malware to prevent me from posting using Semagic, claiming that 'OMG ITS DANGERUS PROGREMZ'.

I was even prepared to, in the face of said claim, shout 'OH NO YOU DIDN'T' and then throw the bastard out of the nearest window. But the claim was never made and so no windows were harmed.

Except, maybe, the Windows that now has a piece of malware skipping about pretending to be it. That's gotta be embarrassing.

So I think I have another malware thingy on my computer. WHERE THE HELL DO THEY COME FROM. There I was, happily browsing the Internet (or as happily as a TalkTalk user could browse, at any rate) when suddenly BOOM! The browser closes, and when I try to open it up again I get a pop-up saying 'install Vista Home Security 2011 OR DIE'. See, the thing is, it looks like a genuine Microsoft program. But then, so did ThinkPoint and Security Shield.

Also, this pop-up, while mostly well-written, contains a few subtle quirks in the language that make my malware alarm go wild. I quote word for word...

"Windows recommend Activate Vista Home Security 2011

Click "Yes, Activate..." to register your copy of Vista Home Security 2011 and perform threat removal on your system."

One: there are elements of Engrish to your writing. Two: I have no recollection of ever having a trial version or whatever of your program. Three: kindly go to hell and perish there a million times.

Methinks it's time to get Malwarebytes on its arse.

Anyway, I managed to write four pages on 'The Great Couch Happening of '69' today, as well as kick arse on Final Fantasy VII. Usually it's one or the other with me. I write and keep writing, or I play FFVII and keep playing. I even managed to listen to a few records, and work a little on my screenplay version of 'The Great Couch Happening of '69'. All in all a productive day. This journal entry will be my final productive act of today, if you don't count sleeping as productive!

Personally, because I'm a lazy sod, I do. It makes me feel better about myself. If someone says to me "So you didn't write or draw anything today?" I'll look them square in the eye and say "I slept. That still counts as doing something with my life!"


And so the story continued and you all got bored and went off to do more interesting things... )
